Man says Catamaran still owes final wages

By Joel Brakken | Nov 6, 2013


WINFIELD - A man is suing after his employer allegedly failed to fully compensate him for work completed before his resignation.

Richard A. Johnson filed a lawsuit Oct. 28 in Putnam County Circuit Court against Catamaran Inc.

According to the complaint, in August 2009, Johnson was employed by various predecessors of the defendant as a commissioned sales person specializing in pharmaceutical products and therapies.

In July 2012, Johnson became employed by the defendant after it merged with his original employer. Johnson says that in March, he submitted his resignation effective March 22, but was persuaded by the defendant to work through the end of March.

He alleges that the defendant violated the state code by failing to pay all wages and benefits due at the time of his resignation by the next regular payday and has continued to refuse to pay Johnson his complete amount of wages due to him.

Johnson is seeking the court to order Catamaran to pay him all wages due, plus interest, liquidated damages and fees. He is being represented by attorneys Lonnie C. Simmons, Sean P. McGinley of Ditrapano, Barrett, Dipiero, McGinley & Simmons PLLC and Michael L. Myers of Myers & Perfater.
