Google sues Microsoft

Posted on Sunday, July 24 2005 @ 21:20:38 CEST by

Last week Microsoft sued Google over hiring Kai-Fu Lee, a Microsoft vice president, and on Friday Google sued Microsoft.

Google states that under Californian law, Microsoft can't hold its employees from choosing where they want to work.
Microsoft accused Lee and Google of breaking a confidentiality agreement and a noncompete clause in his contract.

Lee, the most senior executive that Mountain View, Calif.-based Google has snagged from Microsoft, led a group working to improve Web and computer searches.

Potentially, it's possible that Dr. Kai-Fu Lee, 43 had serious concern about his further career with Microsoft. If he had some performance review issues, for example, his management at Microsoft can fire him without any problems, but by performance reasons. Then in that situation it is very difficult for him to continue work for Microsoft under conditions of potentially being fired at any minute even if he is an outstanding researcher and inventor. The big companies usually have special HR departments and can process it without any legal consequences for them. Then, the move of Dr. Kai-Fu Lee to Google is pretty natural act of self-defence.
