IBM Slaps Ex-Exec with Lawsuit for Jumping Ship to Oracle



+ Add a Comment


This seems like a pretty clear-cut case, and there have been others very similar before it. It's pretty basic stuff for execs not to be allowed to switch to a competing company right away. It was in her agreement beforehand, so there's nothing she can do.



Yea, I think people can often get non-competes thrown out if they are restrictive enough to prevent a person from earning a living for an undue amount of time... but, something tells me this woman could take a year off without putting a dent in her lifestyle. I suspect this will go in IBM's favor.

You know users... Buncha bitchy little girls.
