HOUSTON – A local salon brought a non-competition lawsuit against one of its former employees, according to recent Harris County District Court records.

Thairapy Salon & Spa, Inc. sued Jana Nhu Nguyen on Feb. 15, alleging Nguyen left the business and gained employment with a rival salon late last year.

Court documents claim the defendant executed a confidentiality and non-competition agreement with Thairapy in 2013. She reportedly agreed “not to enter to competitive activities within five miles of the plaintiff’s principal location.”

Ego, where Nguyen currently works, is less than 1 1/2 mile from Thairapy, the suit says.

The respondent is also accused of misusing a trade secret belonging to the plaintiff.

Consequently, Thairapy seeks unspecified monetary damages and a jury trial.

It is represented by William S. Echols of the Weatherby Echols Law Group, PLLC in Houston.
