Playboy Employees Left Holding Bounced Paychecks

As you might have read, one of the biggest Hollywood payroll companies, Axium, went out of the business in early January due to the Writers Guide strike. It so happens that a subsidiary of Axium, Avalon Visual,  serviced Playboy Entertainment Group (the division which includes Playboy TV and Playboy Radio, among other departments)

That means that any paychecks issued in the second half of December came back as unpayable. It is now the second week of February, and 150 of the stiffed employees are yet to be paid. PEG’s human resources department continues to procrastinate.

Whispers from employees are thinking that maybe Playboy doesn’t have the cash-on-hand to re-issue the checks. Why haven’t these people been paid?
