MEDIA - Mental health service provider Springfield Psychological PC is suing two former employees, citing alleged breach of their employee agreements.
Springfield Psychological filed a complaint May 1 in Delaware County Court of Common Pleas against Vanessa Hagan and Amy Alvarez, alleging that they violated their restrictive covenants not to admit outpatients that were originally the plaintiff's clients when they quit and formed their own business.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff suffered irreparable damage to its business in 2000 as a result of the defendants' unlawful actions. Springfield Psychological claims the damage will continue unless the defendants are restrained by the court.
The plaintiff alleged that the defendants' business provides behavioral health services that are similar to those that are offered by plaintiff.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks an order enjoining defendants from treating any of the plaintiff's clients, as well as a judgment in an amount of less than $50,000 and other just and appropriate relief. It is represented by Christopher P. Gerber and John P. Henry of Siana, Bellwoar & McAndrew LLP in Chester Springs.
