Boss Tries To Play Employee, Employee Starts Business With His Clients

The boss in this scenario was ungrateful, and ultimately blinded by greed to such an extent that he never saw his own downfall coming. Seriously. The boss never expected any sort of blowback from screwing over an employee who had by the sounds of it, given the job her everything. Or maybe, they did, and just turned that willing blind eye to the BS that they'd brought on someone else. That's possible. Either way, boss got what was coming to them in the end. It sounds like his old employee is well on her way to running a promising business with most of his clients.
