SENATORS PROPOSE NEW ROUND OF CHANGES TO THE WAGE PAYMENT AND COLLECTION ACT
Senators Charles Trump (R-Morgan), Sue Cline (R-Wyoming), and Tom Takubo (R-Kanawha) have introduced legislation that would, if enacted, require a separated employee who claims unpaid wages to make a written demand for those wages, and allow their former employer to the opportunity to pay the wages outside of court and avoid liability, before filing a suit to recover under the Wage Payment Collection Act (WPCA), W. Va. Code 21-5-1, et seq.
In Tomashek v. Raleigh County Emergency Operating Center et al., Plaintiff filed suit alleging that his wife had called 911 and requested an ambulance to take him to a medical care facility after he became disoriented, aggravated, and disruptive and exhibited other mood disturbance behaviors following inhalation of paint fumes. The 911 dispatcher viewed it as a domestic disturbance and out of concern for the safety of Plaintiff’s wife and minor children, dispatched law enforcement to the scene rather than an ambulance.
