NEW CUMBERLAND — A Hancock County sales manager is suing a Pittsburgh supply company, alleging tortious interference.
Jesse A. Krieg of Weirton filed a complaint April 10 in Hancock Circuit Court against ECM Supply LLC, alleging that defendant terminated plaintiff but refused to provide a termination letter.
According to the complaint, on March 31, Krieg he was terminated from his employment after being compelled to sign a purported covenant not to compete. After his termination, the plaintiff alleges he failed to receive his termination letter and was accused of still having company property in his possession, preventing him from applying to another job and make a living to support his family.
As a result, Krieg says he has suffered emotional distress, inconvenience and financial stability.
The plaintiff alleges ECM Supply failed to provide valid reason why Krieg was terminated, failed to provide a termination letter and and failed to provide a valid and enforceable contract or covenant not to compete.
Krieg seeks trial by jury, compensatory and punitive damages, court costs, interest, attorney fees, and all equitable relief. He is represented by attorney Matthew T. Logue of Quinn Logue LLC in Pittsburgh
