Sprint settles suits over unpaid commissions
« on: December 26, 2018, 11:22:19 AM »


This month, the U.S. District Court in Kansas City, Kansas announced that it had approved two settlements made by Sprint (via Kansas City Business Journal) related to lawsuits over unpaid commissions. Both class action suits date from 2008, and claim that following its merger with Nextel, Sprint failed to pay its reps the proper commissions owed them under a prior agreement. Sprint employees say that the system used by the company was unable to credit them with the proper amount of commissions over a number of years.

Under the terms of the settlement, a class of 34,905 Sprint retail store employees will share $30,500,000.00. That works out to a little more than $873 per class member. 3,917 business channel employees will split $3,650,000.00, or nearly $932 per person. The employees worked for Sprint from 2005-2009. Word of the settlement comes as both sides were preparing for trial. Just last week, Sprint paid a record $330 million to New York State to settle a suit involving unpaid state taxes.
