More Big News Regarding IBM
IBM is facing more employment-related legal trouble, as a trio of former managers say the company fired them earlier this year after they questioned a manager’s decision to shortchange a black software salesman on a commission payment.
Scott Kingston, Andre Temidis and Michael Lee are suing IBM in a New York state court. Filed July 6, the lawsuit alleges IBM violated New York labor and human-rights laws by retaliating against them for sticking up for the salesman, which the filing identified only by the initial “J.”
He was due more than $1 million in commission on a deal, but received only about $200,000 because an IBM finance vice president stepped in and “decided that J’s commission was simply too high,” according to the lawsuit.
