CHARLESTON -- A former employee is suing Five Guys Operations after he claims it failed to pay his final wages in a timely manner.
Andrew N. Watson was employed by the defendant from Nov. 1, 2011, until Dec. 15, 2011, according to a complaint filed June 5 in Kanawha Circuit Court.
Watson claims the defendant failed to pay his final wages within 72 hours of discharging him from his employment.
The defendant's actions violated the West Virginia Wage Payment and Collection Act, according to the suit.
Watson claims the defendant's actions also entitle him to liquidated damages.
As a result of the defendant's failure to pay Watson's final wages within a timely manner, Watson is entitled to an award of wages and benefits due, plus interest, according to the suit.
Watson 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 Tod J. Kaufman.
