WINFIELD – A Putnam County resident alleges she was not timely paid commissions for her work.
Rachel Stefursky filed a complaint Oct. 20 in Putnam Circuit Court against M. Pilcher & Co. LLC, doing business as Tri-State Biotech Solutions LLC; Carey Pilcher; and Beth M. Pilcher alleging that they violated the West Virginia Wage Payment and Collection Act and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff was hired as an independent contractor for the defendants in December 2015 to sell and market Tri-State Biotech Solutions LLC products. She alleges the defendants repeatedly failed to timely pay her and withheld financial information.
