2016. NY Noncompete Not Enforced in Involuntary Termination, despite Offer from Successor Employer. In Buchanan Capital Markets, LLC v. DeLucca, 144 A.D.3d 508 (2016), NY's First Department affirmed the denial of a preliminary injunction seeking to enforce non-compete and non-solicitation agreements against four employees whose employment was terminated without cause prior to a corporate merger. Although the employees were given the opportunity to apply to the successor entity, the absence of a guarantee of future employment caused the appellate court to find insufficient continued willingness to employ the employees, thereby resulting in a finding that they suffered an involuntary termination, which under NY law merited the denial of injunctive relief to enforce noncompete covenants.
