Business litigation: Former CEO deleted company files

Most companies are no stranger to external and internal conflicts. In some cases, the disputes are easily resolved, and in others, businesses could suffer damages and need to take legal action due to the actions of disgruntled individuals. Unfortunately, this type of situation may even involve having to move forward with business litigation against a former employee.

Florida readers may want to know more about such a lawsuit currently underway in another area. Apparently, the former CEO and president of a milk equipment firm became disgruntled with the company after not receiving bonus pay for multiple years after receiving a bonus in 2015. As a result, he started trying to undermine the company owners and tried to turn other management-level employees against the company.

As a result of his actions, the man was terminated from his position. However, before leaving, he reportedly deleted important company files and information from his work-issued computer. The files contained information regarding intellectual property, finances and customers. It was noted that the company had to spend over $5,000 in order to restore the files and for attorney's fees. In the report, the man stated that he did not know anything about the lawsuit that had been filed.

It is an unfortunate reality that former employees can take vengeful actions against their former employers. As this case shows, significant damage can be done to company operations, and legal action may be necessary in order to seek restitution for the resulting hardships. Florida business owners who believe that their shareholders or employees have caused damage to the companies may want to look into their business litigation options.
