Google faces (yet another) antitrust complaint, this time over job search

It has certain features which make it appealing to users -- not only is it very convenient, but it also lists salaries in its postings.

The problem is that smaller job listing companies say that Google's practices are anticompetitive.

The letter sent to the competition commissioner alleges that Google's dominance in search gives it an unfair and possibly even illegal advantage over other job search companies, who have to spend large amounts of money on marketing.

The European Commission has stepped in to chastise Google for anticompetitive behaviors in the past.

Vestager will be leaving her position on October 31st, but as reported by Reuters , there will be an extensive handover process so her successor will continue to investigate the issue.

If the commission does not respond to the letter sent by the other job search companies, the next step would be for the rivals to file a formal complaint against Google.
