Marc A. Helie v. Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith - 9/4/1997
Award Amount- $830,202.00
Case Summary: Marc Helie worked as a trader in Merrill Lynch's Emerging Markets Group from 1989-1994. Merrill Lynch terminated Mr. Helie's employment in 1994 without paying him a bonus, and shortly before he would have vested in a number of stock options that had been awarded to him previously. Following an 11-day trial, a NASD arbitration panel awarded Mr. Helie $600,000.00 and also directed Merrill Lynch to deliver to him 7,056 shares of its common stock, then valued at $230,202, together with all dividends declared from July 31, 1994. The panel also assessed Merrill Lynch $12,250.00 in forum fees.
