Former sales associates are suing the Hendrick Automotive Group, alleging they were cheated out of commissions at its Chevy dealership in Naples. A lawsuit has been filed in Collier Circuit Court against the automotive group and its dealership, operating under the name Naples CH LLC.
Thirty-three salespeople seek class-action status. In the complaint, plaintiffs allege they were deliberately deprived of their commissions because of a policy and practice that added “fictitious or wildly inflated costs” to deals, resulting in the lowest possible payouts to sales associates. They say there were markups for cleaning, detailing, equipment, parts and other services.
