Country Club, Where Membership Runs More Than $100,000, Refuses To Pay $5747 To Worker Ordered To Drive Personal Car To Deliver Food…

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The David versus Goliath trial that pits a Woodfield Country Club restaurant worker against the massive Boca Raton establishment is now set for October. There is no indication that Woodfield Country Club is prepared to settle the complaint.
At issue: whether or not Woodfield is responsible for damage to the car of Joseph Stolarz who claims he was ordered to deliver food to homeowners — from the Woodfield Country Club restaurant — during a time that the community was locked down due to inclement weather. His car’s engine allegedly flooded out.
As BocaNewsNow.com first reported on June 26th: ”The plaintiff, Joseph Stolarz, says the demand of his supervisors to deliver food during what the community calls a ”red alert,” or time when no one is supposed to be on the road in Woodfield, cost him $5,747.87. His insurance company, according to the suit, refused to pay the claim since his personal car was being used to deliver food while he was working for Woodfield Country Club.”
Woodfield — where a $20,000 membership requires a $50,000 initiation fee and a $45,000 equity contribution — refuses to pay the less than $6,000 to fix the car of its employee who was apparently ordered to drive during the lockdown. Ironically, the complaint suggests that he had to deliver food during the torrential downpours because the country club residents didn’t want to risk injury — or damage to their own cars — by being out in the storm.
The trial, first set for August, was just moved to October. Stolarz is representing himself. Woodfield Country Club of Boca Raton is represented by Attorney Keith Hammond of the Hammond Law Center in Orlando.
