What is Wrongful Interference?
Wrongful Interference is when someone intentionally tries to harm the business of someone else. Wrongful interference can come in the form of an undeserved negative review published online or meddling with a contractual agreement they have with a third party. While fair competition is legal, malicious interference is not.
Other Examples of Wrongful Interference
An effort to coerce employees to leave their present employment and take
work with another is specifically unlawful when the purpose of such enticement
is to cripple or destroy their former employer, as opposed to obtaining
the employees’ skills and services for one’s own business
It’s also wrongful interference when the inducement is made through the use of untruthful means, or for the purpose of having employees disclose the former employer’s trade secrets.
What Do You Do?
If any of the above situations have occurred, then the defendant may be liable for wrongful interference. The remedies for a plaintiff in a wrongful interference action include both monetary damages and equitable remedies, including, among others:
- money damages for lost profits
- punitive damages
- specific performance of a contract
- The assessment of money damages is calculable by a number of factors including fair market values or prices listed in the contract itself. We can help you make those calculations.
