CHARLESTON -- A former employee is suing Moses Cadillac Buick Pontiac GMC Truck for multiple violations of the Wage Payment and Collection Act.

Chadwick Jones was employed by the defendant from December 2006 until Feb. 11, according to a complaint filed May 20 in Kanawha Circuit Court.

Jones claims during the course of his employment, the defendant promised him an increase in pay, contingent upon him obtaining certain certifications, but he obtained the certifications in May 2009 and the defendant never increased his pay.

The defendant failed to pay Jones' employment wages owed in full for all pay periods from May 2009 until his discharge, according to the suit.

Jones claims the defendant violated the Wage Payment and Collection Act by failing to pay his wages in full.

Jones is seeking compensatory and punitive damages. He is being represented by Todd S. Bailess.

The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Jennifer Bailey.
