Former Bennigan's employees protest bounced payroll checks

"They promised them to hang in there and make it right and all they did was change the name and say we're not paying," Dotty Gilbert said.

Saturday afternoon in Point Pleasant, Gilbert was protesting.

"For the past six weeks, employees' paychecks have bounced," she said.

Gilbert and her daughter, Casandra Beckett, are both former employees of Bennigan's Restaurant. Now the restaurant has reopened as Halftime Sports Bar and Grill, but they say the owner of Halftime and former Regional Director of Bennigan's, Mike Hughes, lied to them and the rest of the employees and gave them their last paychecks from Bennigan's knowing they were no good.
