I was one of the lead sales people for Empire out of thier Norwalk location. They stopped payment on my paycheck and I could not do anything about it since they had me sign a contract prior to my be hired stating I would agree to use an independant arbortrator in Chicago if ever thier were any pay issues.
The cost of doing this and the amout of $ they owed me (Approx $2500) it did not make sence to go to Chicago from California.
They also are a rip-off company that over charges thier customers for the same exact item you can buy elsewhere for at least 1/2 the cost you end up paying them. Please Beware!!!
