A simple definition might be competing without following the rules.

Since our founding, we have represented employees in a wide range of employment related claims including unfair competition. What is unfair competition? When asked by his professor to define ‘unfair competition’ a law student answered, ‘Well, it seems to me that the courts try to stop people from playing dirty tricks.’ The professor’s comment was, ‘One might spend weeks reading cases and find many definitions less satisfactory than this.” [1 McCarthy, Trademarks and Unfair Competition (3d ed. 1994) § 1.03 at pp. 1.16–1.17] Rutter Guide, Bus. & Prof.C. § 17200 [1:1]

If you have questions, or wish to submit your case for a review, please take advantage of our FREE online case submission.

  • Has your employer engaged in “unfair competition”?
  • Has your employer asked you to do something illegal (e.g. “off-label marketing”, “defraud customers”)?
  • Are you not sure?

These are just some of the questions that you may have…
If you are a California resident we can represent you in your claims regardless of where the company is headquartered in the United States. Similarly, if you are located outside of California and the company is located inside California, we can represent you in your claims . Many times clients and potential clients mistakenly believe that they have no valid claims because they have been told that California is an “at will” employment state.
