The fate of Bravo’s Vanderpump Rules may be in the balance, but that hasn’t stopped the restaurant drama. Yesterday, E! News reported that Lisa Vanderpump and her husband and business partner Ken Todd have been accused of breaking multiple California labor laws in a new class-action lawsuit filed by a former SUR employee. SUR is, of course, the restaurant at the center of VPR.
The lawsuit, according to E! News, was filed by Olivia Beverly Hanson on July 31 on behalf of herself and other former SUR employees. It claims Vanderpump and Todd failed to pay workers minimum wages and overtime wages and also failed to provide employees with meals and breaks. The lawsuit also states that the restauranteurs failed to provide accurate wage statements or pay stubs at the end of their employment.
In the lawsuit, Hanson requested a jury trial. She is seeking damages for all wages earned and owed. Refinery29 reached out to Lisa Vanderpump’s reps for comment on the lawsuit and will update this story if we hear back.
