EU antitrust chiefs urged to crack down on Google's job search

A group of almost two-dozen European job sites have heaped pressure on Google for allegedly using its search engine to unfairly favour its own results.

Google’s new function places a bar at the top of the search engine, circumventing the need for a user to click into a traditional job site.

“Google also directly offers its services to recruiters and thus fulfills the typical functions of a job board.

In doing so, Google is attempting to circumvent and ultimately serve as a substitute for other job boards,” the companies said.

“In fact, behind our backs, Google’s sales teams are already actively and directly approaching our customers and sourcing recruiters as key clients.”

The complainants include Britain’s Best Jobs Online and German sites Intermedia and Jobindex.
