A former Nike retail executive who sued the company for failing to pay him a minimum wage has been dropped from the case.

Michael Ragan filed the lawsuit against the shoe brand in March, alleging that Nike failed to pay the wages he earned while working at the company as a store manager in New Jersey.

He alleged that he was fired after he reported the issues to his supervisor, who in turn filed a lawsuit against Nike, the company and the store manager.

He claims that his supervisor had no legal authority to fire him and that he suffered retaliation for speaking out.

Ragan also claims that the company’s compensation plan was based on the “performance and productivity” of the employees and that there was no guarantee that employees would get paid their full hourly wage.

Nike, which is owned by US conglomerate Wal-Mart, has not responded to requests for comment.
