Few years back, I heard from the inside Ogilvy Chicago and VSA formed an anti-poaching agreement to not hire each other's talent. I said nothing, taking no chance getting my source fired. Illegal?

Huh?

LB1 - both agencies have major IBM pieces of business. Decades-long relationships. I'm guessing OP heard that the higher ups had an agreement to not poach from each other. If this is true, it's because talent going from one shop to the other is driving payroll costs up for both sides. But what they really should be worried about is IBM trying to steal their talent.

Seems illegal

On other hand, I have approved i40 from my ex-employer (Big4) who fired me last fall, I don’t know if they will hire me back. Since I am from India and the date of filing appears like going to be…cont.
