I spoke this morning with my source on Monday’s Playboy paycheck story. Without any interrogation, Playboy decided it was him that had leaked the story, and fired him on Tuesday night.
Our source confirmed that Playboy is still more than 30 days delinquent on at least a dozen employee paychecks. California state law requires restitution of bounced paychecks within a 30 day window. Those dozen or more employees are well within their rights to file suit against Playboy Entertainment Group.
When our source confronted his supervisor about the matter, he was simply told, “I can’t talk to you about this.”
Playboy brass knows they have opened themselves up to a lawsuit with this firing.
Several female performers are also owed overdue checks from Playboy. I’ve been told several girls at Shy Love’s agency are waiting checks for as much as $1700.
