Former Elliman brokers suing

From the June issue: The attorney representing two former Prudential Douglas Elliman agents suing the company for unpaid earnings is expected to depose several executives at Elliman, including president and CEO Dottie Herman, her partner, Howard Lorber, and top broker Dolly Lenz by the middle of this month. The two agents, Jane Klaris and Diana Cannon, filed a federal lawsuit claiming that they were treated by the firm as full-time employees but didn’t receive the annual salary plus commissions they expected for working on-site at a new development. On-site work is a gray area, with some firms hiring agents as employees and others bringing them on as independent contractors.
