CHARLESTON -- A former employee is suing Braley Care Home, Inc., and Braley Care Homes III, Inc., after she claims they failed to compensate her for her work and failed to pay her final wages within 72 hours of discharge.
Amanda L. Walker was employed by the defendants from June until Sept. 1, according to a complaint filed Sept. 21 in Kanawha Circuit Court.
Walker claims during her employment, the defendants never compensated for all time that she worked.
The defendants also failed to compensate Walker for training that she was required to attend, according to the suit.
Walker claims she was discharged from her employment on Sept. 1 and the defendants failed to pay her final wages within 72 hours of her discharge.
The defendants did not send Walker a final paycheck until Sept. 9, according to the suit.
Walker claims the defendants violated the West Virginia Wage Payment and Collection Act.
The defendants' actions entitle Walker to treble damages, according to the suit.
Walker is seeking compensatory and punitive 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 Paul Zakaib Jr.
