Interplay, which under Hervé Caen's management has been involved in a years long back-pay dispute, has finally been forced to settle. Corith, a former Interplay employee who visits our forums, explains:<blockquote>[Hervé Caen] changed salary employee to wage several months after the fact with out notifying them because he felt he didn’t have too. He refused to pay back wages nor any penalties when he lost lawsuits, or would even show up. [. . .] Herve did not want to pay the penalties assigned by the court case, so 4 of us, including Alden and Bioware, got together and claimed in 3 years, IPLY had made no progress on paying the various legal judgments, and that it was insolvent since being evicted. After numerous stalling attempts, the noose tightened as the judge began to see Herve for the slime ball he was/is. Herve went begging to Bethesda to pull his pink, plump, rump out of the ringer. As many of you know, they bought all of Fallout for 6 million, in 2 million installments on the prevision (among numerous others) he has pay EVERYBODY, EVERYTHING, even those that didn’t file. Every lawsuit, every back wage, every dime. No more tricks or Bethesda yanks his chain.</blockquote>So Interplay, under pressure, finally settles the accounts with its former employees.<blockquote>After 3 years, to the month, that the Herve tried to pull his “I don’t pay the little people” stunt, the mighty hand of Bethesda, and the threat of bankruptcy, finally forced Herve to pay me, to pay EVERYBODY. Thank you Herve for the new 07 jeep, and my wife loves her new pt cruiser convertible.</blockquote>Congratulations to Corith and all the other employees who won out in the end.
