Regional Sales Managers Represented by Nichols Kaster, PLLP File Lawsuit against Medical Device Manufacturer, Skyline Medical, Inc.

On April 30, 2015, several Regional Sales Managers (“RSMs”) filed a lawsuit in Minnesota state court against their former or current employer, Skyline Medical, Inc. (“Skyline”), a company that manufactures and sells a device that automates the collection, measurement and disposal of surgical fluids. The RSMs seek compensation and reimbursement based on claims at law and equity.

Among other things, the Complaint alleges that Skyline breached its contractual arrangements with Plaintiffs and violated Minnesota employment law when it failed to compensate them according to their Employment Agreements. It further alleges that Skyline misrepresented its business prospects to lure Plaintiffs to join the company and then, having succeeded, frequently failed to pay them their salary, signing bonus, and commissions. The Complaint also alleges that Skyline ignored 401(k) obligations and neglected to reimburse Plaintiffs for expenses incurred in the performance of their duties.

Plaintiffs’ attorney Matthew Morgan stated, “these Regional Sales Managers lived up to their end of the bargain and they are entitled to compensation by law. This case is about requiring Skyline to pay them for their time and effort.”

Plaintiffs are represented by Matthew H. Morgan and James F. Hauschild from Nichols Kaster, PLLP in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The case is entitled Demaray, et al. v. Skyline Medical, Inc., No. 19HA-CV-15-1746 (First Judicial District, Minnesota).
