FL business owner lays self off to save employees

Posted by Rachel Leigh - email

OCALA, FL (WFLX) - Falling victim to the poor economy, a Florida business owner is forced to lay someone off.

It's an all to familiar story, but this one has an interesting twist.

Instead of having one of her employees fall on hard times, Lola Gonzalez, the owner of Accurate Background Checks, got a little creative and made the decision to lay herself off. "My employees are the most trusted. They've been here for years. They've been loyal. They've been dedicated. It was just the right thing to do in my opinion," she said.

Now, some of the money that was going toward Gonzalez's salary is going back into her company. They have since purchased a mobile fingerprinting machine to help take their business on the road to reach more companies.
