A man is suing his former employer for alleged violations under the Illinois Wage Payment and Collection Act.
Jerry Obrecki filed a lawsuit Sept. 25 in Cook County Circuit Court against Alliance Communications Inc., the owner of a radio station.
According to the lawsuit, Obrecki was promised, both verbally and in writing, a commission on sales of advertising and programming time for the station, as well as hourly compensation for time worked. The suit says Alliance failed to pay Obrecki for all of the commission he earned as an employee.
Obrecki is seeking a jury trial and damages including lost wages and compensatory damages, 2 percent monthly interest on unpaid wages, litigation costs, and further compensation as found necessary by the court.
Attorneys Jaz Park and Richard J. Gonzalez of the Law Offices of Kent-Chicago College of Law in Chicago are representing the plaintiff.
Cook County Circuit Court case number 2015-L-009814.
