They say it's no longer just about the money. A group of drivers for a Gainesville transportation company say they want to put their boss out of business.
Former employee, Katura Small says she's no longer working for X'Ceptional Transport.
The transportation company contracts with state agencies to drive people with disabilities to and from day programs.
"She shouldn't have a business at all; she needs to be closed for good," she said.
Small says the owner, Taimani Perry, owes her three weeks pay-- over $900.
After not getting their money Friday, Small says she and the two other employees quit.
"If she can't provide transportation to our customers, then she cannot earn income through our waiver," said Melanie Etters, APD Communications director.
On Wednesday, complaints made their way to the Agency for Persons with Disabilities.
"If she's leaving our customers somewhere and not going to pick them up, then that's a huge issue, and that could be grounds for us to review her agreement," she said.
Sources tell us Perry is picking up clients on her own.
After trying to track her down, Perry told TV20 over the phone, she was busy transporting clients; and couldn't meet for an interview.
Perry may not be able to pay her employees because she is not being paid by the state Agency for Healthcare Administration-- yet.
