GRETNA – A New Orleans-based siding and window dealer is being sued by six former salesmen who claim they did not receive commission on sales for the company.

Elden Traub, Larry Ferman, Marc Mouton, Edward Stover, Roy Devine and Terry Jones filed suit against Capital Improvement, Inc. in the 24th Judicial District Court on Oct. 16.

The plaintiffs allege they worked for Capital Improvement under an agreement that gave them a base salary plus commissions for sales made and the profitability of the company. The plaintiffs allege that they were not paid salaries and commission that they had earned and that they were illegally terminated after questioning alleged illegal payment practices.

The defendant is accused breach of contract for unpaid wages to Traub in the amount of $60,000, unpaid wages to Ferman in the amount of $1,800, unpaid wages to Devine in the amount of $100,000, unpaid wages to Jones in the amount of $1,200, unpaid wages to Mouton in the amount of $102,000 and unpaid wages to Stover in the amount of $12,931.01.

Damages are sought for the alleged unpaid wages in addition to 90 days penalty wages, attorney's fees and court costs.

The plaintiffs are represented by Jody Forester Jackson of New Orleans-based law firm of Jackson and Jackson.

The case has been assigned to Division G Judge Robert A. Pitre.

Case no. 720-150.
