CHICAGO — A former employee is suing Forest Harlem Properties Profit Sharing and Savings Plan and Trust; The Harlem Irving Companies Inc.; Gregory E. Fix and Merrill Lynch; and Pierce Fenner and Smith Incorporated, citing alleged breach of contract.
Edan Gelt filed a complaint on April 17 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois against the defendants alleging they attempted to delay the rollover of plaintiff's vested funds that she had accrued since working for The Harlem Irving Companies as a marketing director since 2003.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges she was damaged financially from not having received her vested funds upon her termination. The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible because they allegedly disregarded their duties to the plaintiff by willfully delaying the rollover of plaintiff's funds.
The plaintiff seeks judgment against the defendants for the amount of damages shown by evidence, interest, court costs, penalties and any further relief this court grants. She is represented by Allen H. Shapiro and Mark Lenz of Fisher Cohen Waldman Shapiro LLP in Glenview.
