CHARLESTON -- A former employee is suing McDonald's Restaurants of West Virginia, Inc., after he claims it failed to pay his final wages in a timely manner.
Brian A. Taylor was employed by the defendant from Oct. 18, 2011 until Nov. 3, 2011, according to a complaint filed May 30 in Kanawha Circuit Court.
