You may have liability to employees if you participate in the practice

Under certain circumstances, you may have potential civil and even criminal liability for these practices. For instance, under Pennsylvania's Wage Payment and Collection Act, officers of a corporation can be personally liable for wage amounts not paid if they were involved in the decision not to pay. However, there are a great number of facts that would bear on your potential liability, many of which are not evident in your posting. Therefore, I would recommend that you contact an attorney immediately to thoroughly review the issues.
