Our client, Tom Juhl, was fired from this nationally-known manufacturer of PCV electrical conduit for refusing to engage in activities which he believed violated price-fixing and unfair bidding laws. The company first demoted him from Vice President to inside sales, gave him a number of “dead” house accounts, and then fired him for poor performance. This was after reducing his salary by 50%.
At binding arbitration, Nancy Warren, arbitrator awarded Tom over $450,000, finding that he was in fact terminated in violation of public policy. The defendants filed a motion to deny the award and we filed a motion to confirm the award. The award was confirmed and defendants have appealed. The appeal has been dismissed as the parties have resolved the dispute to their mutual satisfaction.
John Derrick was lead attorney in the appeal of this matter. Steve S was co counsel in the underlying arbitration.
