Eagle Express, a Michigan-based trucking company, filed a lawsuit May 18 against HR services provider Paycor, alleging the company failed to calculate Eagle Express’ payroll correctly (Eagle Express, Inc. v. Paycor).
According to the complaint, Paycor did not separate a per diem from Eagle Express employees’ gross pay and added it to their net pay, resulting in an “overpayment to Eagle Express employees and Eagle Express incurring additional costs from the overpaid taxes.” This was a breach of contract and fiduciary duty, according to Eagle Express.
Eagle Express is seeking damages of more than $570,000 along with attorneys’ fees.
“Paycor does not comment on pending litigation,” the company said in a comment provided through an agency. “We do not anticipate this litigation affecting our operations in any material way.”
