CHICAGO — A former employee is suing Northwestern University for allegedly firing him after he complained he was not fully compensated for attending an 11-hour instructor meeting.
Timothy Schoolmaster filed a lawsuit on March 20 in the Cook County Circuit Court alleging that the university terminated his employment for voicing his concerns about not being paid wages.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges the university retaliated against him by terminating his employment for objecting to the university's decision to not fully compensate him for attending the meeting.
The plaintiff seeks judgment against the defendant in an amount greater than $30,000, plus court costs and any further relief the court grants. He is represented by Kristin M. Case and Kate Sedey of the Case Law Firm LLC in Chicago.
