Members of the staff claimed that they were overworked by the couple, and at times were underpaid. Additionally, there was an insinuation that an underage teenager was working incredibly long hours, which would be a major child labor law violation.
It appears that the record needed to be set straight, as a representative for the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star has come forward to refute these claims.
Kim Kardashian denies former staff allegations
According to the Los Angeles Times, these claims seemed to be filed against the wrong person as a third party was responsible for paying the workers justly as well as adjusting their hours properly. The representative for Kardashian stated:
"These workers were hired and paid through a third-party vendor hired by Kim to provide ongoing services. Kim is not a 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."
The spokesperson went on to say that Kardashian is always on time with her vendor payments, and would love for the issue to be resolved as amicably as possible.
On the other hand, Frank Kim, the representative for the former staff, noted that wage violations happen very often in California, and will fight against Kardashian and West to bring justice for these workers. He is also currently representing the Sunday Service Choir who claims that Kanye West violated labor laws with them as well.
West nor a spokesperson for West has yet to make a statement surrounding both of the allegations.
The case is still currently being reviewed, so we’ll have to wait to see if the pair is responsible for the violations.
Hopefully, this all comes to a rather peaceful conclusion, but until then, we’ll be sure to keep you posted on all the latest regarding this case.
