BUSY BEES is the acronym for “Busy Bee,” the popular and controversial company that offers free Internet access to businesses across the United States.
In 2016, Busy Bees filed for bankruptcy, claiming it owed $1 million in debt.
According to its bankruptcy filing, Busys management had failed to properly manage the company, with employees working at home and relying on other companies to pay the bills.
The company also claims it failed to provide full-time support for its employees, leaving them to “bundle up and leave with a paycheck.”
Business Insider asked BUSYBEES CEO, Chris DeLaValla, for an interview, but he didn’t respond to our request for comment.
“We are trying to find a solution for the current situation that is fair and reasonable,” DeLaVa said.
He claimed that the company has a “full and transparent plan” to address employees’ concerns.
However, according to an interview he did with Business Insider, DeLaVA didn’t specify what those changes would be, nor did he say that the employees would be compensated.
“I think we’ve got a full and transparent process,” he said.
And if there is, I don’st want to be in the position of trying to put it out there, you know what I mean?” “
What I’m going to tell you, though, is we have been very transparent and transparent in everything we’ve done, and I’ve told people all the way through that I don’t think there’s any way that we’re going to get through this.
And if there is, I don’st want to be in the position of trying to put it out there, you know what I mean?”
The lawsuit was filed by BusyBee Employees Local 821, an organization that represents workers at BusyBees facilities.
It alleged that management failed to address employee concerns about their jobs, and the lawsuit says that Busybee did not provide paid leave to employees during the time the company was in bankruptcy.
Employees were also not paid for vacation, sick days, or medical benefits, the lawsuit alleged.
DeLava told Business Insider that the lawsuit has “no merit.”
“If we’re talking about money and I can’t pay you, I’m not going to give you a paycheck,” he told Business Insider.
DeLavas claims that his company had a “staggering” financial position when it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. “
If that’s not what it is, we are not a big enough company to afford that, and that’s why this is the case.”
DeLavas claims that his company had a “staggering” financial position when it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
In his bankruptcy filing for Busybees assets, he states that the organization had assets of $9 million, and was “struggling financially” and “suffering financially” because of the “failure of management to effectively manage the affairs of the business.”
De LaValla said that the financial position at Busys was a result of the bankruptcy filing and a “significant reduction” in operating expenses.
He said the organization “failed to maintain sufficient capital for continued operations and to manage the business effectively.”
“The result was a financial position which was staggering and unsustainable,” he claimed.
“For example, the operating loss from 2011 through 2016 was approximately $1,300,000, which included a $250,000 net loss on $1-million in non-cash liabilities and $1 for each $1 in cash.
According to the bankruptcy filings, employees owed $5.4 million in back wages and accrued vacation. “
Thus, while the company is now in a financially stable and stable position, its future prospects are bleak.”
According to the bankruptcy filings, employees owed $5.4 million in back wages and accrued vacation.
“As a result, the current employee is forced to rely on others to pay their bills, including the former BusyBeens senior executive, who owes $2,700 per month in back pay to Busybeens creditors,” the lawsuit states.
The suit also alleges that employees “have experienced retaliation for complaining about Busy bees’ management and failed to adequately address the employee’s concerns and for refusing to cooperate with the bankruptcy proceedings.”
The lawsuit claims that former Busys CEO, Peter R. Crampton, “has also engaged in predatory behavior” by charging the company’s employees higher wages than his competitors, and by “making unreasonable demands” for cash.
De LaVa told BusinessInsider that he doesn’t believe that Rolpton was fired because of his actions.
“Peter Rolston has been a great partner and a great manager for Busys for over 10 years,” he stated.
“He was able to put the business on a sustainable financial footing by focusing on customer service and reducing costs, and he was able
