HUNTINGTON -- A woman is suing Davis' Place after she claims it failed to pay her all of her wages during the course of her employment.
Gifford Perdue, the owner of Davis' Place, was also named as a defendant in the suit.
Gifford's, Inc., is doing business as Davis' Place.
Alethea Kister was employed by the defendants from September 2011 until she was discharged on April 17, according to a complaint filed July 5 in Cabell Circuit Court.
Kister claims during the course of her employment, the defendants did not pay her all her wages and that the defendants had a duty to pay all her wages owed to her in full within 72 hours of discharge.
The defendants breached their duty and in doing so, violated the West Virginia Wage Payment and Collection Act, according to the suit.
Kister claims the defendants' violations entitle her to treble damages.
The defendants' actions caused Kister indignity, embarrassment, humiliation and emotional distress, according to the suit.
Kister is seeking compensatory and punitive damages with pre- and post-judgment interest. She is being represented by Todd S. Bailess.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge David M. Pancake.
