CHARLESTON -- A former Lerner New York, Inc., employee is suing after she claims the company failed to pay her final wages within 72 hours of discharge.
In December 2010, Amanda Bryant was discharged from her employment at Lerner New York in the Charleston Town Center, according to a complaint filed Sept. 9 in Kanawha Circuit Court.
Bryant claims the defendant's failure to pay her employment wages, including fringe benefits, owed in full within 72 hours of being discharged violated West Virginia Code.
The defendant's actions violated the West Virginia Wage Payment and Collection Act, according to the suit.
Bryant is seeking compensatory damages with pre- and post-judgment interest. She is being represented by Todd S. Bailess and Joy B. Mega.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Louis H. Bloom.
