OAK HILL, W.Va. (AP) - More than a year after they last worked for a Frasure Creek Mine contractor in Oak Hill, about 40 mine security guards are set to soon receive their final paycheck.

The Register-Herald (https://bit.ly/1kgLjX9 ) reports that TMK Security, based in St. Albans and Delbarton, left about 40 employees at Frasure Creek and more than 100 at other locations in West Virginia and Kentucky without their final paycheck in November 2014. Trinity Coal Corp. owns the Oak Hill mine.

Attorney Ben Salango says he filed a class action lawsuit against the now-defunct TMK Security in January, with the defendants having since admitted liability.

Salango says he has collected about $110,000 and expects to move through a notice process in January and February before beginning to distribute the money.
