Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y As it turns out, the relationship between Apple and Palm is even less amicable than we already thought it to be. Bloomberg got their hands on communications between Ed Colligan, then-CEO of Palm, and Steve Jobs in which Jobs made a proposal in which the two companies would promise to refrain from hiring each other's employees. Colligan, however, rejected the proposal, calling it wrong and "likely illegal".

Yes, but those are contracts between one person and another.

This would be a deal over people's heads. That's the difference.

These sorts of "deals over people's head's" are done all the time when say one company buys out part of another company, which leads to the question "Is it considered to be OK as long as money changes hands?"

In a more people oriented countries(socialist, if you are a hardcore capitalist), that would allow the employee to terminate his work contract on the basis of changing essential parts of the contract. And the employer is obliged to negotiate and sign a new contract with the person.
