Commissions Due Former Employee Successfully Obtained
The Employment Law group recently obtained the payment of commissions unjustly withheld by a recruiter’s former employer. When the employer suddenly terminated the employee and refused to pay him significant commissions on placements he had made or initiated while employed, litigation was commenced on the employee’s behalf in New York State Court against the former employer. The employer counterclaimed, alleging the former employee’s theft of confidential information and solicitation of other employees. Despite the employer’s vigorous objections, Moritt Hock Hamroff & Horowitz LLP was able to obtain, through the discovery process, key financial documents demonstrating that significant sums were due and owing to the former employee. The case was referred to mediation, and through this alternative dispute resolution process, Moritt Hock Hamroff & Horowitz LLP convinced the former employer to settle the case and pay the employee the sums owed.
