Sprint Nextel (Business Channel Employees) – Unpaid Commissions Lawsuit - Update June 6, 2018

Harlow et al. v. Sprint Nextel Corp. et al., Case No.: 02:08–CV–02222–KHV/TJJ (District of Kansas)

Class Action Commissions Settlement

This website provides information regarding the 2018 settlement of a class action entitled, Harlow et al. v. Sprint Nextel Corp. et al., Case No.: 02:08–CV–02222–KHV (District of Kansas). The case was filed in May 2008. The lawsuit alleges that because of problems with Sprint’s commissions system, Sprint did not pay all of the commissions due to former or current business channel employees.

The Settlement Class includes: All business direct channel employees at Sprint who worked as transactional sales representatives and/or hunters, and those who managed them (including hybrid managers), during the Class Period of January 1, 2006 through December 31, 2009, who were paid in full or in part based on commission, and did not request exclusion from this case.

Sprint denies the claims, that the Settlement Class was net underpaid commissions under the terms of the commission plans, and that the Settlement Class are entitled to relief. However, the parties believe that the proposed settlement is a fair and reasonable resolution in light of the risk and expense of continued litigation. The settlement provides that Sprint will pay $3,650,000.00 to settle this case.

This proposed settlement received preliminary approval from the Court on June 4, 2018 and will resolve all Released Claims of the Settlement Class Members who do not request exclusion from the case.
