Cy-Fair resident sued over employment contract
A company specializing in cashing checks and payday loans is suing its former district manager over claims he breached his employment contract by resigning to work for a competitor.
Financial Services Holding and Ace Cash Express filed a lawsuit on Nov. 17 in Harris County District Court against Cy-Fair resident Troy Kling and PLS Financial Services, citing breach of contract and tortious interference with contract.
The plaintiffs say on Oct. 14, their former district manager, Kling, breached his employment agreement by leaving the company to work for a competitor, PLS Financial Services. According to the brief, Kling has used, or will use, the plaintiffs' confidential and proprietary information to benefit PLS, a direct competitor.
The plaintiffs are seeking injunctive relief, actual and exemplary damages, as well as attorney’s fees and court costs. They are being represented in the case by Houston attorney W. Jackson Wisdom.
