“No Hire” v. “No Solicitation” in the hairdressing world really makes a difference. Plaintiff hires a star hairdresser, and has its attorney prepare an employment agreement. Plaintiff wants it to protect the “Make Up Bar”, and expects a “No Hire” agreement which would give blanket protection against the star hiring its employees at his future new shop. Instead it gets a “No Solicitation” agreement. Star leaves, 4 other hairdressers leave with him, and the Hair Bar loses its case when all of the hairdressers swear that there was a hiring, but no solicitation of them. Defendant star says that he would never have signed a “no hire” which would have kept him from hiring the others under any circumstances. Here, lower court dismisses legal malpractice complaint and appellate court reverses. Details.
