WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Despite allegations that a local medical group is not paying employees, they are looking to hire new ones, according to the website.

According to ACT Medical Group's website, they are now looking to fill three full-time medical positions at the Wilmington location.

Other locations listed on the website include Charlotte, Greenville, Winston-Salem and other cities in NC.

WECT was the first and only news outlet to report that the NC Department of Labor has launched an investigation into the medical group after complaints came in from employees.

WECT.com found a letter that allegedly came from management at ACT informing employees that because of Medicare and Medicaid cuts there is restricted cash flow. As a result, ACT has decided to delay paychecks for at least 20 days.

According to the NC Department of Labor, it is illegal for an employer to not pay employees at the regularly schedule time.

The investigation is still open at this time.
