To all:

Please be aware that, in the U.S., discussion of specific contracted pay rates and services within an industry group may be construed as price-fixing and therefore illegal under the Sherman Antitrust Act and/or the Clayton Act.

What is generally seen as OK? References to third-party compensation reporting surveys, websites, etc., and discussions of general fee ranges and methods of charging for services that do not invoke specific client arrangements.
