Turns out Jay-Z’s bodyguards and other household workers are well protected, but unfortunately for him it’s another day another lawsuit. This time folks want him to pay up workers comp insurance payments from two years ago. SMH.
According to TMZ reports:
Jay-Z gambled with his employees’ health and safety — this according to a new lawsuit filed against the rapper … by the Workers Compensation Board of New York.
According to the suit, obtained by TMZ, Jay-Z failed to pay workers’ compensation insurance for three months in 2009 — and sources close to the situation tell us, the insurance was supposed to cover domestic employees in Jay-Z’s house … cooks, maids, drivers … that sort of thing.
The government agency sued the rapper to collect $18,000 in fines for the transgression — and a court has since ordered Jay to pay up.
According to the docs, it was only a momentary lapse — after the three-month period in 2009, Jay-Z acquired the right insurance and the problem was resolved … with the exception of the outstanding $18,000 owed.
A source close to Jay-Z claims the rapper never lapsed in his workers’ comp payments — telling us, the $18,000 bill is the result of a clerical error … which is currently being sorted out.
It ain’t like he’s not good for it. $18K? That’s chump change for Mr. Carter.
