According to Walmart, the former employee`s new position violated the terms of a non-compete clause in her employment contract with Walmart. A spokesman said all Walmart executives were signing agreements that would prevent them from returning to jobs with competitors who make more than $7 billion in sales a year. NOW, THEREFORE, given the premises and recognitions, pacts, representations, guarantees and agreements in this framework and for other good and valuable considerations, including, but not limited to, special positions forwarded to the Walmart associate, whose receipt and sufficiency are recognized, the parties agree that, in order to obtain an injunction in a case contrary to competition or secrecy , the petitioner (in this case Walmart must demonstrate receipt) that such an agreement was in effect, that it was or will be violated and that the offence could cause considerable damage. Looks like that`s what`s happening with Walmart. The company has just filed a lawsuit to enforce a non-compete agreement against its senior vice president, Chief Tax Officer. Although the woman revealed that she was considering resigning, Walmart says she has not learned that she intends to join Amazon until she resigns. Working for one of Walmart`s main competitors, according to the company, would be contrary to the non-compete clause contained in their employment contract. The former management may have several reasons to object to Walmart`s request to refrain, such as the validity of the agreement, if a job at Amazon would violate the non-compete clause and if the potential harm to Walmart is real. This agreement is the complete agreement between the parties and replaces all previous agreements and representations between them. If, for any reason, a provision of this agreement is deemed unenforceable, this provision will be reformed only to the extent necessary to make it applicable, and the other provisions of that agreement will remain fully in force and effective.
Walmart`s absence of action in respect of a violation of this Agreement by you or others does not constitute a waiver and does not limit Walmart`s rights with respect to this violation or subsequent violations. This agreement is governed by the material law of the State of Arkansas (excluding its legislation). Any action or procedure arising from this Agreement or your use of this website must be brought before the national or federal courts of Arkansas. In his complaint filed at Delaware Chancery Court, Walmart said Hank Mullany, who was hired by Walmart in 2006, signed a non-compete agreement in December 2009, when we were promoted president of Walmart North.
