Tri-Me Transportation was the company that paid Geri Heinemeier and the one she listed as her employer.
When Heinemeier sued the company for sexual harassment, the judge ordered Tri-Me to pay more than $400,000 in damages. Chemetco, a sister company owned by the same people as Tri-Me, may be on the hook, too. While a judge let Chemetco off the hook, the appeals court dragged it back in. Why? Heinemeier's health insurance and raises were handled through Chemetco. Adding to the doubt about who her employer was: Neither company produced a personnel file for Heinemeier. (Heinemeier v. Chemetco Inc., No. 00-1943, 7th Cir., 2001)
