EDWARDSVILLE — A Highland business is suing a former employee for allegedly failing to maintain a confidentiality agreement.
Dean Schuepbach Enterprises filed a complaint March 8 in Madison County Circuit Court against Sabrina Jennings, alleging breach of contract.
According to the complaint, Jennings started working for the plaintiff Nov. 3, 2017. The suit states Jennings agreed to abide by a confidentiality and non-compete agreement with Dean Schuepbach.
The lawsuit alleges Jennings opted to resign from employment with the plaintiff in February 2019, and cited false reasons for her resignation. The suit states she then breached her agreement with the plaintiff through failing to continue to maintain the confidentiality agreement.
Dean Schuepbach Enterprises seeks a jury trial, damages of more than $50,000, attorney fees, court costs and all just and proper relief. It is represented by attorneys Christi Wick, Benjmain Wesselschmidt and Michael P. McGinley of Sandberg Phoenix & von Gontard PC in Edwardsville.
