- Veeva Systems lawsuit challenges noncompete agreements
By Peter Blumberg and Sarah McBride - Tuesday Jul 18, 2017
Veeva Systems Inc., a target of lawsuits over hiring away employees from rivals in life sciences cloud computing, is now trying to turn the tables.In announcing its suit against three companies that have sought court orders to block ex-employees from joining Veeva or allegedly threatened litigation — Medidata Solutions Inc., Quintiles IMS Inc. and Sparta Systems Inc. — Veeva said it’s taking a stand to end a practice it views as anticompetitive.“Employees should have the right to move freely between jobs, advance their careers and improve their lives without fear of being sued by their former employers,” Veeva CEO Peter Gassner said in a statement.Medidata, based in New York City, said it supports and respects the rights of workers to build their careers, but it sued Veeva in January over the defection of five employees, challenging the Pleasanton company’s “illegal targeting and unfair use of our trade secrets.”Typically, a noncompete agreement — which many job candidates in the tech world have to sign as a condition of employment — bars them from working on rival products for a set period of time, say a year, after leaving their current employer.Supporters say they help protect trade secrets and other confidential information and prevent rapid turnover at companies that have made big investments to train employees.

- Jamaican resort stay scrapped over Zika
By Christopher Elliott - Friday Dec 23, 2016
Last year, I booked a vacation at Sandals Ochi Beach Resort in Ocho Rios, Jamaica, for my pregnant girlfriend and me.After news of the Zika virus broke last January, we contacted Sandals to get a refund for the trip because of the seriousness of the health advisory.The Sandals reps were not swayed, and in an effort to find a solution, we temporarily accepted their idea of pushing the trip back a year, which cost us a fee.[...] concerns about Zika have only intensified.If you cancel 30 to 15 days before arrival, you’ll receive 50 percent of the purchase price, including any applicable airline fees.Sandals and your travel agent probably also recommended travel insurance.Some insurance, such as the pricier, cancel-for-any-reason variety, might have helped you secure a partial refund.[...] most normal insurance, which would have excluded any pre-existing medical conditions, would have been useless.Who should take the financial loss for the Zika outbreak?The company says it agreed to refund your room upgrade fee and a private candlelight dinner you’d paid for.
