WINFIELD — A Putnam County woman is suing operators of a McDonald's restaurant, alleging unpaid wages.
Tamera L. Green filed a complaint in Putnam Circuit Court against LMH Inc., alleging violation of the West Virginia Wage Payment and Collection Act.
According to the complaint, starting in 1999 Green had been working as an hourly employee at the defendant's Teays Valley McDonalds. Green says during her employment, LMH required her to make deposits at a local bank at the end of a work shift five times per week.
However, Green alleges she was not paid for the work she performed transporting and handling bank deposits. The plaintiff alleges LMH failed to pay her wages in full no later than the next regular payday following her separation from employment June 5, 2018.
Green seeks trial by jury, judgment of less than $75,000 for unpaid wages, court costs, attorney fees and punitive damages. She is represented by attorney Thomas H. Peyton of Peyton Law Firm PLLC in Nitro.
