Groupon suing former employees who joined Google

Move breaches the previous employees’ contract with Groupon

Groupon Inc. filed a civil complaint yesterday against two former sales managers for breaking their employment agreement and joining a competing venture within 24 months of their departure from Groupon. By moving, the men have taken confidential trade secrets from the daily deal company to the coupon business Google started last year.

Groupon filed the complaint with the Illinois Cook County court and did not include Google in the suit.
