Executive Employee: Claim for Fraudulent Inducement Of At-Will Employment
Confidential settlement resulting in monetary payout to client.
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.
Case settled following successful opposition to motion to dismiss and during discovery involving an intense review of the employers practices. Terms of settlement are confidential.
