CHARLESTON – A man alleges his former employer did not pay all wages owed to him after his termination.
Giles S. Fisher Jr., individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, filed a complaint on Dec. 19 in Kanawha Circuit Court against Slay Transportation Co. Inc. alleging that company violated the West Virginia Wage Payment and Collection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on April 18, 2016, he was involuntary terminated from his employment. To date, he claims he has not received in full all wages owed to him. The plaintiff holds Slay Transportation Co. Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to pay all wages owed to discharge employees within the time required by law and unlawfully assigned wages without a valid wage assignment.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant for all damages to be determined at trial, pre- and post-judgment interest, attorney's fees and costs and such other proper relief. He is represented by Todd S. Bailess, Rodney. A. Smith and Phillip Estep of Bailess Smith PLLC in Charleston and Mark A. Toor of Mark A. Toor, Attorney at Law in Charleston. The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Louis J. Bloom.
