Employees owe their employers various duties. One such duty is the duty of loyalty. This duty requires an employee to act primarily for the benefit of his or her employer in matters connected to the employer. Failure to do so could constitute a breach of the employee’s fiduciary duty.
Sometimes, however, an employee with a legal obligation to act in the best interests of an employer is unfairly accused of breaching that duty. An employee who faces such allegations should hire an experienced lawyer who has successfully helped other clients in similar circumstances. The attorneys at Clouse Dunn LLP frequently advise executives who are considering job changes on how to avoid these claims. They also regularly defend clients in breach of fiduciary duty matters. Their extensive experience enables them both to recommend settlement solutions that accomplish their clients’ goals and to defend their clients against requests for temporary restraining orders and preliminary injunctions.
