“Under an agreement and arrangement with the US District Attorney’s Office for the District of South Carolina, Grandeur Management will remain in business and continue to provide the requisite workforce to many employers along Grand Strand.
All employees will be paid their owed funds as soon as possible and they are encouraged to keep the status quo and stay with Grandeur Management, Inc. and their current employers. “
