Two advance scouts pursue pay disputes with ClippersPosted by Inside Hoops
Lisa Dillman of the Los Angeles Times reports:
Two advance scouts for the Clippers have been locked in a pay dispute with the team.
Jerry Holloway, employed since the 2003-04 season, alleged the Clippers quit paying him this spring and breached his contract. Documents filed June 4 in the Court of Common Pleas in Philadelphia County said the Clippers owed Holloway $22,920 in unpaid salary.
After the suit was filed, the Clippers settled with Holloway for $20,000, a source familiar with the situation said. Court papers said Holloway asked for nearly $36,000, which included the unpaid wages, liquidated damages and legal fees.
Another scout, Scott Wissel, alleges he is owed slightly less than Holloway. Wissel, in an interview, said he is considering his legal options.
The Clippers contend the two scouts were “at-will” employees and did not have written contracts.
