Legal Question

Asked on: 6/06/13, 10:12 pm

I own a nail salon. Two of my employees were in the process of opening a salon across the street while working for me. One of my customers notified me that these two employees were asking for her contact information so they can call her when their salon opens. When I got word of this I fired them. I am now being sured for wrongful termination, and not being paid for overtime. They are asking for $100,000 in damages. I have all their timecards, signed by the plaintiffs showing that they never worked overtime, and multiple customers that are willing to testify they had been asked by the plaintiffs for their contact information. I believe this lawsuit to be frivolous. Do I have a good chance at having a case like this dismissed? I would really like to avoid taking this case to court.
