Putnam County Courthouse

WINFIELD - Jennifer Johnson has filed suit in the Putnam County Circuit Court on Oct. 28, naming Catamaran Inc. as the defendant.

According to Johnson, she was employed by a predecessor of the defendant as a pharmaceuticals salesperson starting in February 2007.

In July 2012, Catamaran allegedly purchased or absorbed her company and she was kept on as an employee, under the same terms she had agreed to with her former employer.

In her original employment agreement, Johnson claims to have been entitled to commissions on certain sales, which was electronically deposited into her account.

Johnson claims she submitted her resignation in March. Johnson allegedly received some commission payments before the defendant retracted the same payments allegedly in violation of state law.

Johnson is seeking compensatory damages for her lost wages. She is seeking a judgment that forces defendant to pay all previously earned commission, as well as a payout for her sick days as governed by her original employment contract.

She is represented by Lonnie C. Simmons and Sean P. McGinley of DiTrapano, Barrett, DiPiero, McGinley & Simmons in Charleston and Michael L. Myers of Myers & Perfater in Charleston.
