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".

The difference is, that is a contract that YOU sign saying that YOU won't leave for a competitor.

That is different from your previous employer making agreements over your head with other potential employers to essentially blacklist you if you try to leave.

Do you have confirmation that the employees in question did not already have such a clause in their employment contracts? If not...
