CHICAGO (Legal Newsline) - Four employees are suing a Northlake company, alleging breach of contract in loss of bonus payments.
Kevin Wielgus, Mark Costigan, Sheryl Pascoe and Tom Ringlestein filed a class action complaint, individually and on behalf of those similarly situated, Sept. 20 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois Eastern Division against Empire Today LLC. They allege the employer breached its employment and independent sales representative agreements.
According to the complaint, as a result of Empire Today's actions, the plaintiffs have suffered a loss of commissions and bonuses. The plaintiffs allege Empire Today failed to pay proper commissions and bonuses due them under their contracts, and allowed computer problems and the failure to pay proper commissions and bonuses to persist.
The plaintiffs seek trial by jury, an order certifying this a class action, appointing the plaintiffs and their counsel to represent the class, unpaid commissions, bonuses and other compensation due, permanently enjoining the defendant's unlawful systemic practice, court fees and costs, plus all other relief that is proper.
They are represented by attorneys Caesar A. Tabet, Timothy A. Hudson and Jordan E. Wilkow of Tabet DiVito & Rothstein LLC in Chicago.
U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois Eastern Division Case number 1:16-cv-09085
