WINFIELD -- A Milton couple is suing American Electric Power Company and Sun Technical Services after they claim their employment was wrongfully terminated.
Franklin R. Pifer, Debra Tygrett and Michael J. Finissi were also named as defendants in the suit.
On May 5, T.L. "Tommy" Tallent's employment was involuntarily terminated on the grounds that he abused the AEP vehicle use policy and that he improperly applied for and/or received per diem payments during an unspecified period of time, according to a complaint filed Sept. 15 in Putnam Circuit Court.
Tallent claims he was unfairly terminated and not allowed to retire as planned. Tallent's wife, Shawnee D. Tallent, also worked for AEP and was terminated from her employment in May.
The Tallents claim they did not receive their final paychecks until more than 72 hours after termination.
The Tallents are seeking compensatory and punitive damages. They are being represented by James D. McQueen Jr. and Amanda J. Davis.
