Google for Jobs: tool becomes target of antitrust lawsuit in the European Union

Google has been receiving a veritable “flood” of antitrust lawsuits in Europe, and the search engine recently saw one of its main tools being overthrown in three countries on the continent.

However, anyone who believes that the European Union wants to stop there is wrong. According to the latest information, the antitrust body has opened a new case against the tool “Google For Jobs”.

The process began to be studied in 2019 after several recruitment sites opened a formal complaint against Google’s anti-competitive behavior.

The main accusation of the competitors is that the Google always favors its own service in search results for jobs.

Illustrative picture.

Known for being a kind of “aggregator” of job vacancies, Google For Jobs has become increasingly relevant in Europe, something that suffocates many local competitors.

Commenting on the matter, Jobindex CEO and founder Kaare Danielsen confirmed that the company signed the complaint against Google.

Jobindex lost 20% of search traffic to Google’s inferior service after it entered the Danish market. By placing its own inferior service at the top of results pages, Google actually hides some of the most relevant job postings from job seekers. Recruiters, meanwhile, can no longer reach all job seekers unless they use Google’s employment service.

For now, Google and Europe’s antitrust authority have yet to comment on the matter. Even so, if convicted, Google will be required to end anticompetitive practices and will also pay a fine.
