The White Law Group announces that it has filed a Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) arbitration statement of claim against Oppenheimer & Co., Inc. (“Oppenheimer”) on behalf of a former Oppenheimer employee. The claim seeks to recover compensatory damages for unpaid compensation to which the employee alleges he was entitled, as well as damages resulting from the employee’s alleged wrongful termination. The damages sought by the former Oppenheimer employee exceed $1,000,000.
The statement of claim asserts claims for wrongful termination, retaliation, tortuous interference with business relationships, breach of the implied covenant of good faith, breach of contract, and violation of the age and discrimination act. The claim further alleges that Oppenheimer failed to pay compensation to which the employee was entitled and that when the employee raised the issue to his superior the firm fired him.
