Unpaid Workers Consider Suit Against Closed Water Park
BROOKLYN PARK (WCCO) — The former owner of a water park and hotel that closed following an I-TEAM investigation could be in more legal trouble.
The I-TEAM learned Grand Rios Water Park owes thousands of dollars to dozens of former employees.
The Brooklyn Park hotel stopped paying its bills and the bank that held its loan foreclosed on the property last month.
Shelby Hinman, who was a lifeguard at Grand Rios, says the business still owes her about $200.
She says all of the employees are owed at least a week’s worth of pay.
“I want that paycheck it’s a big last paycheck,” said Hinman. “It’s hard to find a job right now.”
Employees are considering filing a class action lawsuit to get the money.
The former owner of the hotel did not return our calls.
