Ebony Magazine Paying Freelancers $80,000
After being sued by freelancers who say there were never paid for their work, EBONY Magazine is paying up. The Chicago Tribune reports that the historic publication settled a lawsuit with dozens of freelancers nearly $80,000 to settle a lawsuit over unpaid work stretching back more than two years.
Ebony Media and its owner CVG Group, will pay out the full amount in quarterly installments over the course of the year.
Ebony does not admit liability or wrongdoing in the settlement.#EbonyOwes tweets went viral last year from disgruntled freelance writers and photographers.
We’re glad to hear all this has been settled. Pay people what they’re owed, publications.
