Case Number: 
2013 IL App (1st) 130292
Decision Date: 
November 22, 2013
District: 
1st Dist.
Division/County: 
Cook Co., 5th Div.
Justice: 
McBRIDE
Holding: 
Affirmed.
Plaintiff's employment with Defendant company was terminated 15 months into a 5-year employment contract. Court found Plaintiff was terminated without cause and awarded him lost wages for violation of employment contract. However, court properly found that Plaintiff was not entitled to relief pursuant to Illinois Wage Payment and Collection Act. Unpaid future compensation for remainder of a terminated contract, where there is a question as to whether employee was terminated for cause, does not fall under Act's definition of "final compensation". (PALMER and TAYLOR, concurring.)
