Lake Land Employment Group of Akron, LLC v. Columber – Case Brief



Lake Land Employment Group of Akron, LLC v. Columber

Procedural History:

  • Trial court finds for D on summary judgment. There was no consideration on non-compete contract.
  • P Appeals.
  • Court of appeals confirmed.


  • D is an employee of P from 1988 to 2001.
  • D signed the non-competition agreement.
  • After being discharged from working for P, D formed his own business similar to that of Lake Land.


  • After employment has already begun, is continued employment of the same nature sufficient consideration to make a non-competition contract enforceable?


  • Reversed and cause remanded.


  • At the time of being presented with the non-competition contract, both parties had the ability to quit or fire and both elected to not exercise that right.
  • Consideration exists where an at-will employer and an at-will employee continue their employment relationship, rather than terminate it, after the employer imposes a new requirement for employment.
