Premise Health Holding Corporation, a health company located in Florida has filed a lawsuit against their former Director, Erica L. Thomas for theft of trade secrets.
Premise Health is a corporation that provides on worksite health services such as primary and preventive care and wellness coaching. Thomas was employed by Premise Health as the Senior Director of Client Operations, specifically responsible for the company’s contract with the Walt Disney Company.

The materials used included performance information, videos, and other information that was not publicly available and was only accessible to Premise Health due to her employment.
