A RECRUITMENT agency is seeking a High Court injunction restraining three former employees from using confidential information which the agency says they acquired during their employment.
Mason Alexander Ltd of Haddington Road, Dublin, seeks injunctions against Steven Bell, of Parkview, Carrickhill, Portmarnock, John Clark, Palmerston Road, Ranelagh, and Brendan Hennessy, Morehampton Road, Donnybrook, all Dublin. It also seeks an injunction against data processing and hosting company Spark Digital & Analytics Ltd, also of Palmerston Road, Ranelagh.
Earlier this week the company was granted permission by the court to serve at short notice the proceedings on the defendants.
When the case returned yesterday , Ms Justice Leonie Reynolds adjourned it for a further three weeks after she was told efforts are to be made between the lawyers on each side to resolve the matter.
Mason Alexander seeks injunctions against the defendants restraining them from breaching post-termination restrictions in their contracts of employment, from keeping, using, or divulging confidential information obtained during their employment and from using its intellectual property.
An order is also sought requiring the return of materials relating to the firm’s business and clients.
