MORGANTOWN - Two women, on behalf of all those similarly situated, are suing Regis Corporation after they claim it violated the West Virginia Wage Payment and Collection Act.
Lori Ryan Davis was employed by Regis until Feb. 18, 2011, in its Marion County facility, and Rebekah Shaaya was employed by Regis in its Monongalia County facility until May 24, according to a complaint filed in Monongalia Circuit Court.
The plaintiffs claim when they were discharged from their employments, Regis did not pay them all their wages and benefits in full in a timely manner.
The defendant's actions violated the West Virginia Wage Payment and Collection Act, which entitles them to damages for the unpaid wages and benefits and liquidated damages, according to the suit.
The plaintiffs claim they are suitable class representatives because they will fairly and adequately represent and protect the interests of the class members and their interests do not conflict with the interests of the class members.
Regis employed the class members in its West Virginia facilities between June 30, 2010, until the present, according to the suit.
The plaintiffs are seeking compensatory damages with interest. They are being represented by Frank X. Duff and Sandra K. Law of Schrader Byrd & Companion PLLC.
