CHARLESTON -- A former human resources professional is suing after his employer allegedly failed to pay his final check in a timely manner.
Mark A. Toor filed suit June 25 in Kanawha Circuit Court against the West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission.
According to the complaint, Toor worked for the defendant as vice chancellor for human resources resources from Jan. 2, 2013, until his resignation May 2, 2014.
