Lisa Vanderpump Allegedly Not Paying SUR Employees!! Lisa Vanderpump is facing yet another class action lawsuit from a former employee of SUR.
Olivia Beverly Hanson filed the lawsuit on behalf July 31 on behalf of herself and others who worked at Vanderpump’s West Hollywood, Calif. restaurant, which is featured on Vanderpump Rules. According to the documents obtained by E! News, Hanson is accusing Vanderpump and her husband, fellow restaurateur Ken Todd, of breaking multiple California labor laws.
The filing claims that for at least the past one to four years, Vanderpump and Todd failed to pay workers minimum and overtime wages, provide proper meal and rest breaks, provide accurate wage statements or provide workers with pay stubs at the end of their employment.
Hanson claims she worked at SUR from Oct. 2019 to Jan. 2020. Her responsibilities at the upscale eatery included “seating patrons, confirming reservations and answering phones,” the lawsuit states.
She is requesting a jury trial and is seeking damages for all wages earned and owed, including minimum and overtime wages, damages for unpaid premium wages from missed meal and rest periods, and damaged for gratuities earned but not received, among related reparations.
In Jan. 2020, another former employee of SUR and the couple’s other restaurants, Tom Tom and Pump, filed a class action lawsuit against Vanderpump and Todd. The suit, which is still ongoing, also alleged the violation of labor laws.
A source told E! News at the time, “These were two disgruntled ex-employees that had been written up with many warnings by management and subsequently let go. Lisa and Ken do not tolerate anyone that may be abusive to their staff or to patrons.”
