SHERMAN – A Denton County man alleges that his former laser metrology machine seller employer terminated him to avoid paying his commissions.
Charles Josh Haley filed a complaint on Oct. 16 in the Sherman Division of the Eastern District of Texas against Hexagon Metrology Inc. alleging violation of the Rhode Island’s Wage Act and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff was hired by the defendant in 2010 as a salesperson and that he was paid primarily in commissions. He alleges that on Aug. 2, he was terminated from his employment so the defendant could avoid paying him earned commissions of $275,000.
The plaintiff holds Hexagon Metrology Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly violated the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing by failing to pay his earned commissions.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks actual, statutory and punitive damages; pre- and post-judgment interest; costs; attorney's fees and such other lawful and equitable relief. He is represented by Wm. Kim Wade and John P. Walsh of Wade & Walsh Law in Dallas.
