Wisconsin Court of Appeals
Torts – negligence — public policy
EBA Design, Inc. appeals an order that dismissed its negligence claim against a former employee, Nichole Meeker, following a trial to the court. The circuit court ruled that the at-will employment doctrine precluded EBA Design from recovering tort damages for losses stemming from negligent performance of an employment contract. We affirm on a different ground. We conclude that public policy considerations bar recovery for negligence based upon the specific facts of this case. This opinion will not be published.
