GRETNA – A staffing agency is suing a former employee who allegedly tried to lure employees and clients away to start his own firm after being fired.
Staffing Select Inc. and Remedy Intelligent Staffing filed suit against Aaron Shaffer in the 24th Judicial District Court on Feb. 18.
Staffing Select Inc. and Remedy Intelligent Staffing claim that Shaffer signed an employment contract on May 1, 2013 for a period of one year, but on Jan. 19 he was terminated for cause. The plaintiffs assert that since the defendant’s termination he has been making repeated calls to the current employees and clients of the plaintiff in attempt to set up a competing staffing agency.
The defendant is accused of breaching his employment contract.
An unspecified amount in damages is sought for imminent damages, irreparable damages, loss of revenue, damage to reputation and attorney’s fees.
Staffing Select Inc. and Remedy Intelligent Staffing is represented by Carl A. Butler of Metairie-based Leblanc and Butler LLC.
The case has been assigned to Division B Judge Cornelius E. Regan.
Case no. 735-608.
