A recent dispute between an employee and his former employer has led to a rift between two of the largest licensing companies in Israel and has led the National Labor Court to issue an unprecedented ruling. According to Licensing Dynamics International (LDI) - one of the leading consumer products agencies in the Middle East - one of its former employees, Amos Hakmon, former head of marketing, quit the company and passed on its secret merchandise information to a new company he joined. LDI filed a suit with the National Labor Court and, in an unprecedented ruling, Judges Yigal Flitman, Shmuel Zur and Varda Viret-Livneh appointed a receiver in a civil suit with the authority to search Hakmon's home and the offices of the new company, Bratz Licensing Israel Ltd. Attorney Shai Teken, who represents BLI, dismissed LDI's claims and said there was no basis for the appointment of the receiver in the first place. According to Teken, the court will issue a ruling in the coming days regarding the legitimacy behind the earlier decision to appoint the receiver.
