Executive Employee: Claim for Fraudulent Inducement Of At-Will Employment

Result

Summary

In a unique action involving an executive employees acceptance of "at-will" employment with a new employer, on behalf of our client, Mr. Internicola, Esq. successfully advanced claims of fraudulent inducement and unjust enrichment. The employer filed a pre-answer motion to dismiss on the basis that the employment relationship was "at-will" and that they were permitted to terminate him at any time. The Court held that although the employment relationship was "at-will" that the executive employee nevertheless stated claims for fraudulent inducement related to claims involving false statements that induced the employee to leave his prior position.

Awarded
