Kim Kardashian Just got sued by staff who claim they were underpaid and not given breaks

Kim Kardashian is being sued by garden and maintenance workers who alleged she withheld taxes from their wages without furnishing those amounts to the IRS. She also did not pay for OT, didn’t allow meal breaks and made a 16 years old staff work past the weekly hours allowed for his age.

The lawsuit was filed by by 7 workers: Andrew Ramirez; his brother, Christopher Ramirez, and son Andrew Ramirez Jr.; Aron Cabrea; Rene Ernesto Flores; Jesse Fernandez and Robert Araiza who worked on the property as gardeners and maintenance staff.

A lawsuit was filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Monday

Los Angeles Times confirmed that the workers “were not paid on regular periods, were not given their required meal and rest breaks, were not provided a means to record all their hours, were not paid all their hours, were not reimbursed for employment expenses, were not paid all their overtime wages, and were not paid their wages upon termination of employment”.

A spokesperson for Kardashian told Page Six, “These workers were hired and paid through a third-party vendor hired by Kim to provide ongoing services. Kim is not party to the agreement made between the vendor and their workers, therefore she is not responsible for how the vendor manages their business and the agreements they have made directly with their staff.

“Kim has never not paid a vendor for their services and hopes that the issue between these workers and the vendor who hired them can be amicably resolved soon.”

The lawsuit maybe settled with over $30,000
