CHARLESTON -- An employee is suing McDonald's after he claims it has violated the West Virginia Wage Payment and Collection Act during his employment.
Richard Estes has been employed by the defendant since Aug. 1, 2006, according to a complaint filed Sept. 20 in Kanawha Circuit Court.
Estes claims McDonald's requires him to work off the clock so as to avoid overtime payment and has deducted hours from employee time cards to avoid overtime payment.
McDonald's failed to pay Estes wages due and owing, according to the suit.
Estes is seeking judgment against the defendant for an amount equal to loss of all wages plus interest and liquidated damages. He is being represented by J. Michael Ranson, Cynthia M. Ranson, George B. Morrone III and G. Patrick Jacobs.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Louis Bloom.
