DEAN G. HAFEMAN v. PROTEIN DISCOVERY, INC., A TENNESSEE CORPORATION (Tenn. Ct. App. February 28, 2011)
This is a breach of employment contract action filed by Dean G. Hafemen ("the Employee") against Protein Discovery, Inc., a Tennessee corporation ("the Employer" or "the Company") after the Employer terminated the Employee's employment before the expiration of the term of his "Amended and Restated Employment Agreement" ("the Agreement").
The complaint alleges that the Employee is entitled to certain severance benefits provided for in the Agreement for any termination that does not qualify as a "Termination For Cause" as defined in the Agreement. After a bench trial, the court found that the termination was for cause and entered judgment in favor of the Employer. The Employee appeals. We reverse.
