Company bound by non-solicitation clause with compensation sent by mistake

The court found that the employee neither knew nor should have known, that a mistake had occurred. Even though the employee was already covered by an old non-solicitation clause, without entitlement to compensation, the company became bound by the new clause and had to pay compensation.
