LinkedIn non-solicit lawsuit update

June 1, 2010

Back in March I posted about a lawsuit where the plaintiff alleges that an employee who left the recruiting agency violated the noncompete/nonsolicit agreement by reaching out to clients of the former employee.

Here is a link to one of the emails that the employee sent to the client of their former employer.   This is a pretty clear case of solicitation but what if the former employee had just sent a “I’ve a new job” email?  Is it the fact of the communication that’s the problem or its content?
