CHARLESTON - A former employee is suing Prima Marketing LLC for violating the West Virginia Wage Payment and Collection Act in a class action suit.
Prima is doing business as Prima 7-11 #5722 and Prima 7-11.
The other defendants named in the suit are 7-Eleven Inc., which is doing business as 7-Eleven and 7-Eleven 35901-35969; and 7-Eleven Sales Corporation.
Lisa D. Jenkins' employment with Prima was terminated on Oct. 5, according to a complaint filed May 9 in Kanawha Circuit Court.
Jenkins claims the defendants failed to pay her final wages within 72 hours of discharge and she did not receive her final wages until Oct. 11.
The defendants not only failed to pay Jenkins' final wages in a timely manner, but also failed to pay others similarly situated when their employment ended, according to the suit.
Jenkins claims the defendants' actions violated the West Virginia Wage Payment Act.
The defendants' actions caused Jenkins to be damaged, according to the suit.
Jenkins is seeking compensatory damages and injunctive relief. She is being represented by Todd S. Bailess and Joy B. Mega of Bailess Law PLLC and Rodney A. Smith and Jonathan R. Marshall of Bailey & Glasser LLP.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Carrie Webster.
