Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul is suing a Bridgeview based construction company over an elaborate scheme to keep its employees off payroll and avoid paying tax withholdings required by law.  The Attorney General’s lawsuit accuses Drive Construction and others of a years-long conspiracy to pay millions of dollars of wages in cash.  The suit also claims Drive misclassified workers to avoid paying employees fair rates of pay for the hours they worked and to skirt its obligations to pay unemployment insurance contributions to the state.
