Kardashians latest- Kim SUED for ‘failing to pay staff’ at $60M LA home on wedding anniversary with ex Kanye West
STAFFERS SUE KIM AT HER $60M LA HOME
Kim Kardashian is being sued by seven of her staff members for unpaid wages, however, the reality star is instead putting the blame on the vendor.
The TV star is being accused of also not providing those workers meal breaks and failing to cover any expenses.
In legal documents obtained by TMZ, and confirmed by The Sun, the seven staffers who previously worked for the famous reality star at her Hidden Hills property are suing her and claiming they were told they were full-time employees when they were first hired.
However, they claim they were instead treated like independent contractors, which in turn led to them losing out on any full-time benefits. Kim is also being sued for “failure to pay overtime wages” and for “unfair and unlawful business practices.
A rep for Kim tells the outlet another story, though, as they claim that the mother of four hired a third-party vendor for the ongoing maintenance/cleaning services, and she’s is not to blame for the agreement made between the vendor and the workers.
The rep explained that Kim “is not responsible for how the vendor manages their business and the agreements they have made directly with their staff.”
They added: “Kim has never not paid a vendor for their services and hopes that the issue between this worker and the vendor who hired them can be amicably resolved soon.”
According to the lawsuit, one worker alleges he was fired after he asked about his rights and those of his son … whom he says was only 16, but worked more than the maximum hours allowed for a minor under California labor law.
