WHEELING — A former employee is suing Klear LLC d/b/a Klear Water Management, a waste water treatment facility, citing alleged breach of employment contract and unjust enrichment.
Joshua Martin filed a complaint on June 7 in the Ohio County Circuit Court, alleging that the defendant failed to fulfill its contractual obligations.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that his employment with the defendant was terminated on Jan. 23, 2017 prior to the guaranteed 12 months of employment outlined in the contract. The plaintiff claims that he suffered damages for loss wages and benefits and, despite his best efforts, he was unable to obtain employment.
