CHARLESTON -- A former employee is suing Aetna Building Maintenance, Inc., after he claims his employment was wrongfully terminated.
David L. Lottig Jr. worked for Aetna when he claims his supervisor began changing employees' work hours by removing anything more than 40 hours of work, according to a complaint filed March 22 in Kanawha Circuit Court.
Lottig claims the supervisor was falsifying documents and refused to give him payment for hours he worked over 40.
The defendant then transferred Lottig out of the Bayer plant because he was "singing loudly in the basement," when he thought everyone had already left work for the day, according to the suit.
Lottig claims they later suspended him for three days and then terminated his employment, claiming he had stolen a laptop from work. Lottig claims he did not take the laptop.
He is seeking judgment in an amount to be determined by the court. He is representing himself.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Carrie Webster.
