A year after the agreement was reached, Lavin reportedly began discussions with PillPack about the release of CVS for a position at Pillpack and even interviewed PillPack and Amazon executives. After an interview, Lavin was finally offered the position of director of third-party networks and contracting, which directly reported to the CEO of PillPack. Shortly thereafter, Lavin resigned from CVS and started a job at PillPack. Read also – Change of state in the non-competition law: the right of non-competition varies enormously from state to state. The choice of law is often decisive in cases of non-competition. Washington will impose reasonable non-competition obligations, but they are subject to many defences. The same case would have been totally different as a result of another state`s non-compete clause. Take Florida as an example. Florida is probably one of the most competitive states in the country.
That is not an exaggeration. I think the Florida courts routinely issue injunctions in non-competition cases where (1) there is no legitimate commercial interest and (2) there is no irreparable harm. It`s a problem. So if you put this case in Florida, Wells Fargo will get an injunction. Conclusion: the choice of law is essential in cases of non-competition. When workers are sued by their employer for breach of their employment contract, it is quite common for workers to argue that the contract was invalid, but it is less common for them to claim that their signature on the contract has been falsified. That`s what Eric M. Frieman said when USI Insurance Services, LLC sued him for allegedly stealing clients from Wells Fargo to work with his new employer, RCM-D Self-Insured Services Inc., also known as SISCO. The action is the latest in a series of lawsuits filed by Amazon to enforce non-compete rules in employment contracts. In 2017, Amazon sued another former vice president who left Amazon Web Services to take a job at a software company in Seattle, but dropped the complaint shortly after filing. In 2019, Amazon filed a similar lawsuit against a former chief commercial officer of Amazon Web Services after he, too, left the company to take a job at Google Cloud. A judge ultimately agreed to partially limit some aspects of the employee`s role in Google, but dismissed parts of the restrictive pact as „unreasonable“ and urged Amazon to take a uniform approach to its non-compete agreement.
The recent complaint comes after Washington state passed a new law last year that severely limited the enforcement of non-competition bans within the state. We have already written here about this new law.

The complaint alleged that Miles violated the non-compete clauses and non-recruitment clauses in his employment contract when he joined rival Alphatec in October 2017. Gonzalez filed his indictment on August 3, 2011 at the Florida Human Rights Commission (FCHR) after completing his employment on August 3, 2010. According to the Bank, Gonzalez did not file his disability discrimination charges „within 365 days of the alleged violation“ with the relevant public authority before filing a complaint under the Florida Civil Rights Act, thereby quaesting his FCRA claim for failure to meet all the conditions that constitute a precedent.
