Totall Metal Recycling has filed suit against one of its former employees, alleging she violated numerous contracts after she left employment with the company

In its complaint, Totall, of Granite City, alleges it hired defendant Lynn Fix to serve as freight broker on its behalf on Oct. 31, 2005. On March 14, 2014, Fix submitted her resignation, according to the complaint filed Oct. 22 in Madison County Circuit Court.

Before leaving her employment, Fix gathered confidential contact information regarding Totall's customers and suppliers, plus other confidential information, that she disclosed to Totall's business competitors, the suit states.
