COLLIER COUNTY, Fla.- Employees of a Collier County call center were handed paychecks today, after allegedly going without pay.
Today, those same employees showed up for work, only to find out the company had shut down.
Employees gathered where they used to work, processing claims from the British Petroleum oil spill. They wanted their back pay, but found the doors locked today. Certified public accountant Gary Wittock had run a call center in the building, and another office about a block away on Horseshoe Drive.
Employees who were promosed paychecks for the past week gathered outside. A man who worked as a supervisor there joined the workers. He too said the company had not paid for work.
Wittock could not be located for comment.
