Cases of Interest
-Business and Corporations Law-
Proper method for determining whether the sole shareholder of a corporate employer is liable for the wrongdoing of the corporation is by the application of an alter ego theory. A determination that a person is thealter ego of a corporation does not make the alter ego an employer. Complaint did not contain sufficient factual allegations to inform defendant that plaintiffs were seeking relief on the basis of alter ego liability; it neither specifically alleged alter ego liability nor alleged facts showing a unity of interest and inequitable result from treatment of the corporation as the sole actor, and contained no allegationsthat shareholder should be held liable for corporation's wrongdoing.
