Global Medical Response, Inc. and subsidiary AirMedCare Network are on the receiving end of a lawsuit filed by two membership sales managers who claim they were shorted on commissions.
The plaintiffs sell memberships for AirMedCare Network, a company the suit describes as the “largest independent provider of emergency air medical services in the world.” According to the case, which seeks class action status, the two workers were assigned sales territories in Arkansas and Oklahoma, respectively. In addition to base salaries, the suit claims, the plaintiffs were promised through their employment agreements commissions that were supposed to kick in after a $4,000 monthly target was met in their designated sales territories, regardless of who sold the memberships.
In January, April and May 2018, the case continues, the defendants allegedly mailed advertisements directly to consumers residing in the plaintiffs’ sales areas. The suit claims the companies failed to count any memberships that were purchased by mail toward the territories’ total revenue, effectively violating the employees’ wage contracts. As a result of these practices, the complaint charges that the plaintiffs received and continue to receive less commissions than they are owed.
