According to Apple Insider, Apple, along with major technology companies, including Google, Intel, and Adobe, has come to an agreement with the class. The lawsuit was made in the best interests of 60,000 Silicon Valley employees. The settlement has prevented the trial to get initiated in May, which might force the companies to pay a massive penalty of $9 billion. However, the firms have agreed to pay $324 million.
In 2011, the workers filed a complaint, stating that the companies had illegally made an anti-poach agreement which would disable the firms taking away employees from one another, consequently keeping the wages low.
However, Apple hasn’t made any comment regarding the issue.
