We have recently begun working on an interesting wage dispute case involving Ramey Motors in Princeton, West Virginia, and one of their fellow employees, Mr. Keith Tyler. Part of the complications of this case is that he is a fellow employee not of his own accord, and suspects he has been wrongfully terminated.
Mr. Tyler used to work for both salary pay and commission rates based on a “policy work” formula, which is fairly standard for many car dealership employees. This system considers “reconditioning costs” related to getting a car up to consumer standards between the times the dealer purchases and when it is ready for resale. Mr. Tyler has claimed that Ramey intentionally and fraudulently inflated the value of the policy work in order to short-change him out of commission money.
When he brought this issue to the appropriate members of the company, he mentioned that he would notify the Labor Board if not corrected. At this point, he felt that the dealership started trying to find ways to fire him. A month later, he pointed out the alleged fraudulent behavior again but was told by the company’s director that the issue could not be discussed. It was not long until he was terminated.
