Walmart Takes Legal Action To Prevent Former Tax Executive From Joining Amazon: Reports
Walmart Inc has reportedly asked a court to block a former top tax executive from joining Amazon.com Inc, saying the move would 'violate a non-compete agreement' and 'irreparably harm' Walmart by potentially tipping off its rival to strategic plans including potential merger targets.
Lisa Wadlin told Walmart in January she was considering resigning as senior vice president, chief tax officer, but the company did not learn she was joining Amazon until separation papers were signed on May 15, according to the lawsuit.
