Whitefish-based Potter’s Field Ministries says it no longer intends to permanently close its doors. The ministry ceased much of its operations this summer following allegations of psychological and emotional abuse. The ministry also faces allegations that it skirted state and federal labor laws.

It’s been a little over three months since Whitefish-based Potter’s Field Ministries and its affiliated burger chain closed down amid allegations of psychological and emotional abuse.

For the first time, workers are providing detailed documents outlining how they also worked 240-plus hours per month for as little as $300. The state labor department is now investigating.
