PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Authorities in Rhode Island are investigating a Providence gym after several billing-related complaints from customers and employees.

The public information officer for the Attorney General’s office tells WLNE-TV (http://bit.ly/2aCny8o ) about a dozen complaints have been filed against Synrgy Health and Fitness. A civil investigative demand has been filed for owner Michael Owen to appear before them by Aug. 17.

The Department of Labor and Training says it’s investigating three wage-related complaints.

Former personal trainers claim they’ve dealt with bouncing paychecks and are still owed money. A former member says it took months for her to get refunded for a personal training session she was double-charged for.

Owen’s attorney, Jules D’Alessandro, says the club has never kept money it wasn’t entitled to and has no control over how quickly refunds are processed.
