One day after Eyewitness News aired a story about bounced checks for Taco Tico employees, some workers are getting answers.
Jacob Taylor, 17, said he had not been paid in full for more than a month.
"Every time we got our checks, it was for the full amount," he said. "But it was the same thing. They'd bounce, like we'd try to cash them and they'd come right back."
Taylor was told he could pick-up a cashier's check from his manager's office Thursday.
Mohmood Karim, Taco Tico's owner, did not want to go on camera, but Eyewitness News talked to his attorney who is handling the company's bankruptcy.
Ajax International filed for bankruptcy earlier this month after the state shut down 10 restaurants across Kansas. The businesses owe the state more than $435,000 in sales tax.
Bill Zimmerman, attorney, said the company is working to get the books back in order. Taco Tico has to deposit $5,000 in the department of revenue's account every Monday until the debt is paid off.
"I understand this is a horrible hardship on the employees," Zimmerman said. "We're trying to deal with that as quickly as we can but we also weren't sure who got paid and who didn't.
Ajax International plans to pay back all of the employees in a timely manner. There are about 60 employees left who have stayed with the company. Employees who have not filed received payment can file a claim on the company's website.
The owner plans to keep the restaurants open through the bankrupcty process.
