MILWAUKEE (CN) - A medical software company sued its former vice president of sales, claiming that while it paid him $225,000 a year, plus commissions, Jeffrey Shulman was hauling in another $166 an hour from Hewlett-Packard.
Dart Chart Systems claims Shulman violated his employment agreement, which promised he would "devote his entire working time, skill, knowledge and energies necessary for the conscientious performance of his duties in a manner that would faithfully and diligently further Dart Chart's business interests."
Shulman, Dart Chart's executive vice president of sales, double-dipped as a salesman for H-P, according to the complaint in Milwaukee County Court.
Dart Chart helps long-term care facilities get Medicare reimbursements and follow the rules. According to the company website, "Dart Chart is the first company to have complete, web-based Medicare reimbursement software for long-term care facilities."
Dart Chart demands $820,000, plus punitive damages. It characterizes its losses as $440,000 in salary to Shulman, plus "compensation paid to employees hired at the request of defendant that he failed to supervise and who failed to perform in any manner for Dart Chart in an amount in excess of $200,000, lost profits, some or all of the travel and ancillary expenses in excess of $180,000 and any other losses ..."
Dart Chart is represented by Douglas Marsch with Reinhart Boerner Van Deuren.
