"CHAMBLEE, Ga. -- A memo obtained by 11Alive News has a tough message for employees affected by a bed bug infestation at a Chamblee business: If employees aren’t working, they are not getting paid.


11Alive has been reporting on the bed bugs situation at Wipro in DeKalb County since last week, holding the powerful accountable. Thursday, Chris Hopper obtained the memo that was sent to employees, which lays out what employees can do.


The memo states: 

“Employees will be paid for all hours worked. If an employee has a medical issue related to bedbugs, he/she can file a claim through the WC program. Employees who choose not to come to the office may use PTO or simply take unpaid time off."


In that same memo, Wipro said the same rules apply if the company has to shut down the building for treatment for any length of time."
