MCS Capital Partners and its owners are facing a lawsuit over claims they refused to pay a bonus to an employee.

Stephen A. Kemph Jr. filed a lawsuit Dec. 17 in the Cook County Circuit Court against Mica Creek-Sagamore Capital Partners, doing business as MCS Capital Partners, Jason Pollack, Steven Deluca, Robert Hayes and Charles Dubroff, citing breach of contract and the Illinois Wage Payment and Collection Act.

The complaint states that Kemph and MCS Capital Partners entered into an employment agreement on Aug. 9, 2012, stipulating that once Kemph became largely self-sufficient with the majority of the aspects of the company's acquisition process, his acquisition bonuses would be at or near 1 percent.

Kemph claims he received a 1 percent bonus in December 2012, but that the defendants willfully refused to pay him a bonus for a March 2013 acquisition..

He is seeking more than $50,000 in damages and is being represented in the case by Robert J. McLaughlin of Segal McCambridge Singer & Mahoney Ltd.
