Lawsuits Against Chrysler Financial

Author: admin - Categories: Introduction - Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

Do you have a lawsuit against Chrysler Financial?  Do you know of someone who has a lawsuit against Chrysler Financial?  Do you have grounds for a lawsuit against Chrysler Financial but have been hesitant to take action?

There have been and continue to be legitimate, significant claims against Chrysler Financial, Chrysler LLC, DaimlerChrysler Financial Services and other legal names for this same company on general business, consumer and commercial credit issues, and a broad range of employment matters. Chrysler Financial is currently owned by Cerberus Capital Management L.P.

This blog’s purpose is to specifically put Chrysler Financial (the “Company”) complaints and related settlements in the open (where legally possible), provide valuable support and information regarding legal strategies, counter the rhetoric and subterfuge of the Company’s legal counsel, and share ideas on ensuring broad financial responsibility for payment of damages resulting from any judgment against the Company.

Equally important, this site will help expose and hopefully reduce unjust and/or illegal business and consumer practices, illegal employee firings, discrimination, etc., and the use of subsequent Corporate blackballing tactics to retaliate against those who choose to fight for their claims and fight against their professional demise.

(This is a blog update.   See original post of April 2, 2010.)

Discovery and trial preparations continued in July and August.  The trial date for the former company manager’s lawsuit v. DaimlerChrysler Financial Services Americas, et al. (owned by Cerberus Capital Management L.P.) has been postponed to March 14, 2011.   The continuance was granted to accommodate the substitution of a trial attorney for the Plaintiff.

The complaint includes the following primary causes of action:  1) Wrongful termination in violation of public policy; 2) Age discrimination; 3) Intentional infliction of emotional distress; 4) Unlawful Harassment based on age; 5) Unlawful retaliation; 6) Failure to pay statutorily mandated wages; 7) Failure to provide adequate meal periods and rest breaks; 8) Violation of Labor Code section 1050; and, 9) Unfair Business Practices.

Future updates will follow.

Wrongful Termination of Professional Manager, formerly with DaimlerChrylser Financial Services (Chrysler Financial), Update

(This is a blog update.   See original post of April 2, 2010.)

In response to the Defendant’s Motion for Summary Judgment (MSJ) and Motion for Summary Adjudication (MSA) filed early in January 2010, my lawyer submitted an extensive response on all claims as supported by a personal declaration, other former employee declarations, key information gathered from over 4,000 documents and 16 depositions, in addition to specific legal objections and relevant case law.

The hearing on the MSJ and MSA took place on June 18, 2010.    The ruling by the Judge was to deny the Defendant’s motions (and rule in our favor) on all claims against Chrysler Financial (DaimlerChrysler Financial Services) except one- in other words, 8 claims were allowed to continue to trial.    The motions were also denied (and ruled in our favor) on the two claims against one of Chrysler Financial’s managers- one of my former supervisors.

The trial is set to begin on September 7, 2010 in Orange County, CA Superior Court.

Wrongful Termination of Professional Manager, formerly with DaimlerChrylser Financial Services (Chrysler Financial), Update

(This is an update of the initial blog below dated April 2, 2010.)

After formally objecting to their Performance Appraisal and PIP, based on absolutely no communication in 2005 of any performance issues but rather significant successes, my manager told me to “get the (expletive deleted) out of here” but subsequently rescinded the PIP.  After making substantial progress on achievement of my goals for 2006 (officially set in March 2006) and successfully completing significant “high priority” assignments, not part of my 2006 goals, I was nonetheless fired without warning in May 2006.

My manager did criticize my progress on 2006 goals in April and May and I responded with justification and a plan of action.   My colleagues within DaimlerChrysler Financial Services (DCFS) and Chrysler Group to whom I provided marketing and administrative support were shocked and disappointed with my firing, and have provided some support for my claims.

Through discovery, including hand-written notes and depositions, we will show that in October 2005 my manager (newly assigned in June 2005) along with two other managers in the company pre-planned “my push out the door” or firing, if necessary within 90 days. In addition, discriminatory comments relating to my age and the resulting ability to do my job surfaced as early as late 2005 and continued in 2006.   Likewise, overtime concerns that I raised to my functional  and administrative managers in 2005 and 2006, most specifically relating to the high percentage of administrative tasks that I was doing, will also be shown to be a factor in my firing.

Wrongful Termination of Professional Manager, formerly with DaimlerChrysler Financial Services

Author: admin - Categories: Blogs - Tags: , , , , , , , ,

I currently have a lawsuit against DaimlerChrysler Financial Services Americas, LLC and one of its managers.   The lawsuit was originally filed in July 2008.  As a former company manager, my complaint includes the following primary causes of action:  1) Wrongful termination in violation of public policy; 2) Age discrimination; 3) Intentional infliction of emotional distress; 4) Unlawful Harassment based on age; 5) Unlawful retaliation; 6) Failure to pay statutorily mandated wages; 7) Failure to provide adequate meal periods and rest breaks; 8) Violation of Labor Code section 1050; and, 9) Unfair Business Practices.

Specifically, the overview of my case starts with being a 56 year old, productive, 25-year industry executive (MBA/BS Degrees) employed by Chrysler Financial for 3 years, to being unjustly fired in 2006, to filing a complete and truthful Employee Dispute Resolution, to the Company’s rejection of that dispute, to indicating my possible pursuit of legal action (but holding off so as to not impact my job search), to being turned down on countless jobs, for which I was amply qualified for, based on suspicious timing and lame excuses, to being out of work for 17 months and then only finding lower-level work that paid 40%-70% of my former salary-and only temporarily.  And, all this time, my family and I have borne extraordinary pain and suffering-physically, mentally and financially.

Current status of case: Discovery is nearly complete with over 4,000 documents produced 16 depositions taken, and 3 depositions being scheduled.   Defendants filed their Motions for Summary Judgment in early January 2010 with a hearing scheduled for June 2010.  Trial is set for early September 2010.

Defendant’s counsel has stated that even if we win a judgment in a jury trial, they will appeal and before the appeal is heard, Chrysler Financial will be closed down-out of business and out of money.

The most significant claims in my case are: that age discrimination and overtime pay issues lead to my firing; and, that retaliation by means of covert blackballing caused substantial and continuing loss of future income.    Chrysler Financial’s defense is that they fired me due to non-performance on a Performance Improvement Plan (PIP), which they surprised me with in February 2006 along with a 2005 Performance Appraisal, citing a results rating of “partially met” (goals).   Our case will clearly show that the PIP basis for termination was pretextual and grossly flawed.
