CLEARWATER — Former employees have filed a class-action lawsuit against a company for allegedly failing to uphold its sales structure for agent commissions.
Montana Massa filed a complaint on behalf of himself and all others similarly situated on Sept. 7 in the Sixth Judicial Circuit Court for Pinellas County, Florida, against Evoqua Water Technologies LLC, alleging that the company breached an agreement with the plaintiffs through unpaid commissions.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that from March 2013 through January, named plaintiff Montana Massa worked at the defendant's company as a sales representative. In December 2014, the plaintiff purportedly was offered a new sales incentive plan, which he accepted. Although the plaintiff allegedly met his sales target, he received lower than expected commissions despite what the sales incentive plan showed, because the defendants argued that calculations were incorrect. This caused the plaintiffs to allegedly suffer damages of lost commissions and interest.
The plaintiffs hold Evoqua Water Technologies LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to pay amounts due under the incentive plan, failed to correct the distributed incentive plan on time and failed to release an inculpable incentive plan.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment in their favor, to certify class and subclass, appoint named plaintiff as class leader, damages, interest, attorneys' fees, costs, expenses and other relief as allowed by law. They are represented by John A. Yanchunis and Rachel L. Soffin of Morgan & Morgan in Tampa.
