Jury Verdict for Breach of Key Manager Retention Plan

Following a seven-day jury trial, our firm recently obtained a verdict of more than $330,000 on behalf of our client, who had brought suit against his former employer for unpaid wages due him under an Employee Retention Plan. Our client was awarded unpaid wages and liquidated damages. The case involved contract interpretation by the jury, application of Iowa’s Wage Payment Collection Act, and assessment of the employer’s claim of “for cause” termination under the Retention Plan.

Results: $330,770
