BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Luxury goods company ordered to pay former Yves Saint Laurent designer


(Reuters) — Luxury goods group Kering was ordered on Wednesday to pay $13 million to a former fashion designer Hedi Slimane.

Slimane worked for Kering's Yves Saint Laurent brand, and designed clothes for singer songwriter David Bowie and actor Brad Pitt among others.

He brought the case after his employer did not apply a non-compete clause that was in his contract when they parted company in April.

Slimane argued that the clause should have been applied, along with associated financial compensation.

"We won," said the lawyer, Herve Temime. "I'm happy because this its a natural outcome. The contract terms were absolutely clear."

Kering said it would appeal.
