More Big News Regarding IBM

by The News & Observer | Employment Law | Share

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.

John Whitfield has been significant in his management of a suit involving the death of my son in a motorcycle accident. His professionalism, compassion, support, and especially his knowledge base in this suit has been above reproach. He has communicated well and kept all parties apprised of the status of the suit. I feel he negotiated effectively to reach the best possible settlement for my son's estate. He certainly assures his clients are represented well. I am grateful for his successfully bringing this suit to a satisfactory conclusion. In short, John's expertise has been awesome.

I am very grateful to Whitfield Bryson for taking the initiative in filing suit against the manufacturers of defective CSST pipe. I am sure that this successful litigation will now help Maryland homeowners become aware of the danger of old style CSST pipe and to let them know what steps they may take to protect themselves against those dangers. Who knows how many lives and homes may be saved as a result of his efforts. Thank you for your important work in this litigation.
