When contacted, Walker said he would not pay Flaten before changing his mind and paying him in coins.

In March 2021, Walker dumped the pennies in Flaten's driveway.

Flaten's girlfriend posted a video of the pennies on Instagram, garnering outrage and empathy from netizens who have dealt with difficult bosses.

Unfair payment

Flaten said that it took him hours to move the coins into his garage.

"It's going to be hours upon hours of just thing to clean this money up so that it's even able to be spent. It's definitely not fair at all," he said.

CNN reports the lawsuit filed by the Labour Department indicated that after delivering the coins, Walker wrote a defamatory against Flaten on his website.

The Labor Department is seeking KSh 4.1 million in back wages and damages on behalf of multiple employees, including Flaten.
