In my post last week about the risks and liabilities of under taking fundamental changes to a business without proper legal advice, I glazed over an important issue covered in the AmericareHealthcare Servs. v.Akabuaku, 2010 Ohio5631, No. 10AP-777 (10th Dist.November 18, 2010) case regarding the enforceability of non-competitionclauses in employment contracts.
