Corporation Pays Back Employees

Dozens of former Washex employees can finally look forward to getting paid. Courts have granted Washex permission to pay more than $260,000 in back pay to the Texas Workforce Commission. The Commission will then distribute the funds to former employees. Washex will also pay hundreds of thousands of dollars owed to Wichita County, the City of Wichita Falls and the Burkburnett School District. No word on when the payments will be made.
