Yannick Payette, et al. v. Guay inc. (January 23, 2013)
Case # 34662
The assets of companies controlled by the appellant were purchased by the respondent in October 2004. All of those companies worked in the same field, namely crane rental. The contract of sale provided that Mr. Payette would remain employed by Guay. The contract stipulated that Payette be bound by a non-competition clause and non-solicitation clause for five years after the end of his employment. The company dismissed Mr. Payette in August 2009 and in March 2010 he began working for a competitor, Mammoet. Guay applied for an injunction and pending the trial was granted a provisional injunction and a safeguard order.
