MADISON (WKOW) -- The Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development is still collecting complaints from former H&H Group Holdings employees after the company abruptly shut down.

The company closed on January 14, after company president Bill Howe of H&H Group Holdings sent an email to employees stating multiple divisions of the company had, "suspended operations, effective immediately."

The layoffs affected employees of H&H Group Holdings, H&H Electric, H&H Solar, H&H Plumbing and H&H Construction Services.

As of Monday January 27, DWD has received four former employee complaints claiming H&H did not provide adequate notice before closing and owes employees thousands in unpaid wages for weeks worked in January.

Under Wisconsin's Mass Layoff Law, companies with more than 50 employees are required to give 60 days notice to the state, however there are exceptions, according to DWD spokesperson Tyler Tichenor.

According to court records, days after H&H's sudden closure, the company filed for receivership, a process similar to filing bankruptcy.

Court records also show the state Department of Revenue filed more than half a dozen liens against H&H Group Holdings from September through December for withheld taxes.
