Fox is suing Netflix for allegedly poaching employees from the company.
In a statement provided to Business Insider, Fox says: “As our complaint explains, we filed this lawsuit because we believe Netflix is defiantly flouting the law by soliciting and inducing employees to break their contracts. We intend to seek all available remedies to enforce our rights and hold Netflix accountable for its wrongful behavior.”
The legal complaint was filed by Twentieth Century Fox and Fox 21, a TV production subsidiary, in Los Angeles County, West District, TheWrap reports.
Fox claims that Netflix is encouraging its employees to violate contracts in order to go work for the streaming giant, which has done “great and irreparable harm” to Fox.
Netflix did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Business Insider.
