Contract Disputes: Jeunesse sues LifeVantage CEO

Many people in Texas and elsewhere around the world consider getting involved with a multi-level marketing company to start their own business or to make some extra income. When people choose which company they would like to join, a significant part of the choice will be based upon the products that a specific company offers. Contract disputes among direct selling companies can occur when former employees branch off to start their own businesses and are accused of stealing proprietary information.

Jeunessee Global, a skin care multi-level marketing company, claims to have over 400,000 distributors around the world and, for 2014, reported revenue of more than $400 million. The company has accused its former sales chief of stealing the formula for one of its products. The man allegedly ripped-off Jeunessee's Instantly Ageless serum formula.

According to the complaint, the former employee left the company after approximately three years to become the CEO of his own multi-level marketing company, LifeVantage. The defendant allegedly stole the formula for the serum and made his own product called TruScience. Additionally, the former sales chief is accused of contacting Jeunesse's distributors and attempting to get them to switch companies.

The defendant is accused of violating an agreement that he purportedly signed when he left the company. The man contests the allegations and asserts that any damages Jeunesse suffered had nothing to do with him. Moreover, he argues that the company did not try to mitigate any damages sustained. Those in Texas facing employment contract disputes have every right to seek professional assistance to protect their personal and business interests.
