Domain Dispute - Former Employee

A typical domain dispute arises when an employee of a company leaves with passwords and information related to the management of the company's domain name. During the exit interview / processing, discussion about the management of the company's domain name is commonly overlooked. Accordingly, the company fails to update the domain name passwords and contacts, which allows the former employee to continue to access and manage the domain name.
If the employee leaves on bad terms, they may change the password and contact information related to the domain name and try to deface the company website and/or use it for other purposes. Although the company may have a good case and high likelihood of getting the domain back, the failure to lock the former employee out will cause at least a few days of stress and hassle.
The prior blawg posts on the Domain Dispute process may be a good starting point to assist you.
