CHARLESTON -- A former Central Transport employee is suing the company for failure to pay his final wages within 72 hours of terminating his employment.
Cecil Hill was employed by the defendant from July 17, 2005, until Jan. 17, according to a complaint filed May 31 in Kanawha Circuit Court.
Hill claims the defendant failed to pay his final wages within 72 hours of discharge, which violates the West Virginia Wage Payment and Collection Act.
The defendant's failure to pay Hill's final wages in a timely manner entitled him to liquidated damages, according to the suit.
Hill is seeking compensatory 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 Jennifer Bailey.
