Firm Prevails in Wage Claim

Another Thompson Warner client received good news this afternoon when a Kansas administrative law judge ordered the client’s former employer, a sales corporation, to pay $198,673.58 in back wages and interest. Adam Hall tried the case in October, arguing that the employer withheld the payment of commissions contrary to the employment agreement. The Administrative Law Judge ruled that the evidence established that the CEO of the employer “permitted the violation with full knowledge of the facts,” and that “the facts and law require imposition of individual liability for the wages and interest.” Thus, the CEO and the corporation were “found to be jointly and severally liable.”
