I'm a former employee of a company who filed Chapter 11 the day after I quit. my reason for leaving was that my paychecks bounced. All of them. I haven't been paid a dime for the three months I worked there, last year.
They hired somebody to act as a sort of "restructuring manager" who was approved by the bankruptcy court, and he's been giving me the runaround for...nine months, now?
It's excuse after excuse. The winter weather slowed down revenues, etc. Last I heard, he was "hopefully" going to start paying pre-petiton wages "late April, early May." I emailed him two days ago and now I believe I'm just being ignored.
So, how long could I potentially wait to be paid? How long does a Chapter 11 have to repay their creditors? At what point (if any) does a Chapter 11 become a chapter 7? You know, when it's determined that the company is just too far down the hole to be saved, after all?
I've got all the emails and other info, if needed. The company is called **** and they're out of ####CT. The info is public, as I'm sure you're aware so you can look up the case.
