Employment Group receives summary judgment for client in breach of contract claim

Member John B. Cromer and Associate Laura E. Caravello of the Employment Group successfully obtained a summary judgment in a breach of employment contract claim for a waste management solutions client, where the plaintiff, a former employee, sued the company and its president for damages and legal fees under the Pennsylvania Wage Payment and Collection Law. The plaintiff alleged that the contract’s language detailing his bonus structure was ambiguous and entitled him to a greater percentage of generated revenue. Ultimately, the court sided with the defense, determining that the contract’s language was clear and unambiguous, and that plaintiff was already appropriately compensated.

Note: The results obtained in a particular case are, of course, always heavily dependent on the facts and the law specific to that case.
