Suit: Bob Rohrman Auto Group illegally collected employees' wages

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Two former employees of the Bob Rohrman Auto Group are suing the company, alleging that they and other employees were forced to give up part of their wages as a way to help dealerships make up profit losses. The practice, they allege, has been enforced for at least 20 years.

Glenn Meier and Gerald Oslance filed the class-action suit Tuesday in Cook County Circuit Court. The two allege that during their tenures with the company, the Rohrman Auto Group illegally recouped losses from the wages of management-level employees.

“As with most for-profit businesses, Defendants experience business losses,” the suit stated. “Unlike most for-profit enterprises, however, Defendants do not bear such losses as ordinary costs of doing business.”

Meier and Oslance both worked for Rohrman Auto Group as finance and insurance managers for 21 and 27 years, respectively, the suit said.

A representative from Bob Rohrman Auto Group could not be reached Tuesday evening.

The suit alleges violations of the Illinois Wage Payment and Collection Act and seeks reimbursement of wages.
