The Justice Department alleged that Meg Whitman, the former CEO of eBay Inc., was intimately involved in making an anticompetitive agreement that prohibited eBay and Intuit Inc. from hiring each other's employees.

In a federal lawsuit, the government said that Whitman and Scott Cook, Intuit's founder and executive committee chair, were involved in forming, monitoring and enforcing the anticompetitive agreement. California Attorney General Kamala Harris filed a separate lawsuit under state law, which she said contains stronger protections against anticompetitive practices than federal law.

Cook was a member of eBay's board of directors at the same time he was making complaints about eBay's recruiting of Intuit employees.

Acting Assistant Attorney General Joseph Wayland, who is in charge of the U.S. Justice Department's antitrust division, said in a statement that eBay's agreement with Intuit hurt employees by lowering the salaries and benefits they might have received and deprived them of better job opportunities at the other company. The division has consistently taken the position that these kinds of agreements are unlawful under antitrust laws.

The two companies compete directly for specialized computer engineers and scientists.

At Hewlett Packard Co., where Whitman is now chief executive, company spokesman Michael Thacker said that Whitman would have no comment. Whitman ran unsuccessfully for governor of California as a Republican in 2010.

eBay spokeswoman Lara Wyss said that the Justice Department and the California attorney general are taking an overly aggressive interpretation in their enforcement of antitrust law in this area. eBay will vigorously defend itself. The company said that both the federal and state governments are using the wrong standard in these matters. The company competes openly for talent in a broad, diverse global market across a range of industries and professional disciplines, and eBay's hiring practices conform to the standards that the Department of Justice has approved in resolving cases against other companies.
