Williams Protection Agency, Inc / Failure to pay wages/suspect business practices
This company failed to pay it's guards on normal paydays, numerous times in 2007. In addition, some guard's paychecks bounced when cashed at their banks, even after this complaint was made known to the business owner. I am aware of one guard whose paycheck was returned by his bank for insufficient funds on behalf of his employer, on three consecutive paydays. Business owner fails to insure that payroll funds are sufficient to cover payroll checks, and also makes excuses to employees as to why payroll is not met. Paychecks are often distributed 3, 4, 5 or 6 days late, and then the guards rush to the bank to cash them before the money is gone. Problem was so severe in mid-2007 that the Operations Manager and 6 employees walked out on consecutive days. In addition, they had to call the police to do a standby when they attempted to collect their paychecks, because the company owner refused to pay them or release the checks. Police additionally advised the business owner that releasing employee's personal property at the office would be complied with, and stood by while employee's property was removed. Another employee had to sue in small claims court, to collect monies due him, that this employer refused to pay.
Company also is operating without a business license (illegally) in the city of Aurora, and had the corporation name administratively dissolved by the State of Colorado (failure to file annual reports). Beware of this company, and it's practices. Businesses: Use this security service with caution. Potential employees: Please think twice about about your career before becoming an employee there. You could be next!
