HUNTINGTON -– A Huntington man has filed suit against IBC Sales Corporation, alleging he was not paid three weeks of vacation time to which he was entitled after he was terminated from his job.
Carllon Spangler claims he was employed by IBC from April 25, 1988, until he was terminated May 7 "after over 20 years of service to the Defendant as a model employee," according to the complaint filed Jan. 8 in Cabell Circuit Court.
At the time of his termination, Spangler claims he was due three weeks vacation time benefits within 72 hours of his termination.
However, IBC has failed to provide the benefits, according to the complaint.
Because he has been denied his benefits, Spangler claims he has suffered extreme aggravation, emotional distress, mental anguish, embarrassment, economic loss, inconvenience, attorney fees, costs and expenses.
Spangler is seeking the court award him three times the unpaid amount of his past due vacation time as liquidated damages, plus damages for aggravation, emotional distress, mental anguish, embarrassment, economic loss and inconvenience.
He is also seeking costs, attorney fees and pre- and post-judgment interest.
Kenneth P. Hicks and J. Ryan Stewart of Kenneth P. Hicks in Huntington will be representing him.
