In late March 2022, billionaire Shad Khan’s Black News Channel announced that it would file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
Several employees reported never receiving their final paychecks after initially being informed that the paycheck would be delayed. Deadspin reported on April 1 that the employees had still not been paid. Another outlet reported on April 8 that workers still had not been paid.
Employees likely have a claim for wage theft.
Shad Khan’s Black News Channel was based in Florida, though former employees are also reported to reside in Atlanta, Georgia.
