LME Trucking in Janesville has ceased operations, leaving some of their employees without their paychecks, NBC15 learned Friday.

The company announced Thursday that it was closing because of “unforeseen circumstances” and that it is now using an alternate freight carrier to make deliveries.

The Minnesota-based company has other Wisconsin locations, including in Chippewa Falls, and about 600 workers nationally.

NBC15 reached out to the Janesville and the national headquarters in Roseville, Minnesota, but our calls have not been answered.

According to the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development, they did not receive a layoff notice from the company for any Wisconsin locations.

DWD officials recommend if employees did not receive a paycheck, they should file an unpaid wage claim with the equal rights division.
