Tina Fey Doesn’t Appreciate Her Workers? Now In A Lawsuit

478015647

Actress Tina Fey is facing a $79,000 (£49,375) lawsuit from New York State officials. As suggested, she failed to pay workers’ compensation insurance for more than a year.

Now, Workers’ Compensation Board executives filed a lawsuit against the Mean Girls star in Supreme Court in Manhattan on March 20th.

According to documents obtained by The Smoking Gun, Fey received a bill, ominously marked with “Final Notice” for not carrying the insurance from late 2012.

As Page Six reported, the agency recently filed a lawsuit against Fey because she was a month behind on the payment.

She supposedly failed to execute her duties as an employer. Details about the number of employees involved have not been shared.

According to TheSmokingGun.com, Fey reportedly did not pay the required insurance for her staff from November 20th, 2012 to February 2nd this year.

The judgment was first sent to a Manhattan address to her production company Little Stranger, though she has been personally named over the amount.

As reported by New York Daily News, an aide said that the address is an old one where her accountant used to be. The address is about six years out of date and no longer in use.

The documents also state that Fey has previously appealed the fine.

However, Fey’s spokeswoman, Cara Tripicchio, advocates the allegations are unfounded, stating that the actress “has proper and current insurance covering all employees and at no time has workers’ compensation lapsed.”
