RIPLEY -- A Jackson County company is suing over claims a former employee has breached a contract by failing to repay relocation costs.
Constellium Rolled Products Ravenswood LLC filed a lawsuit June 18 in Jackson Circuit Court against Nolan Wadland, citing breach of contract.
According to the complaint, Constellium hired Wadland in November 2011 and paid relocation costs for Wadland to move to Jackson County. Constellium says the contract stipulated Wadland would have to pay back relocation costs if he left within the first two years of employment, with the amount to be repaid decreasing the longer he was employed.
The lawsuit states Wadland resigned in June 2013, making him responsible to pay back one-fourth of the relocation costs, which he has failed to do.
Constellium is seeking an order requiring Wadland to repay the relocation costs.
It is being represented in the case by attorneys Christopher L. Slaughter and Jami K. Suver of Steptoe & Johnson PLLC in Huntington.
