Can I continue to pay my employees after chapter 11?


Payroll Checks Under Chapter 11Recently, a client asked whether on behalf of his business he could continue to pay his employees during the pendency of the Chapter 11 bankruptcy case. The answer is usually yes, but it requires that the attorney has first filed what’s called one of the first-day motions; in other words, it’s a motion where the debtor is requesting permission from the bankruptcy court to continue its business operations, such as making payroll. Routinely, these orders are granted with certain considerations that the court looks at closely, but it’s a very good question.
