DECATUR, Ala. (WHNT) — Employees at Decatur Emergency Medical Services claim their payroll checks are bouncing and they are not being paid for time worked.
Kristi Graham has worked at Decatur EMS for more than six years, but over the last year she says several of her payroll checks have bounced.
“It hurts my feelings because they have lied to me, they have not be honest,” Graham told WHNT News 19 during an exclusive interview Friday evening.
Our newsroom has received other similar complaints from employees claiming payroll problems over the past few months. The governing body that oversees Decatur EMS will not confirm or deny if they are currently investigating any type of payroll problems within the organization. Graham says she has filed a complaint, but due to confidentially clause, the board can not discuss any ongoing investigations.
Decatur is one of two EMS services operating inside the city currently.
Graham fears she may lose her job for going public with her claim but says she fears if no one says anything, things will continue to get worse.
