Bad Bob's BBQ still closed, owner making progress with payroll

Posted: Updated:

The current operator of Bad Bob's BBQ says after shutting down the restaurant and selling whatever scraps employees could earlier this month, she is now catching up on payroll.

Mayuri Patel says she paid her employees the money she owed them this week. Patel says she still has to make one more payroll in the near future and is selling items so she can make that payment.

Our Community Watchdog first began investigating the restaurant last year when it failed to pay 22 employees proper minimum wage, amounting to thousands of dollars in back pay.

Since, Patel has paid back some of the employees. She tells us in addition, she has started paying back three more employees owed back pay.

Patel says she is trying to make good on her promise to pay those people but, "It's just taking time because of various complicated reasons."
