Tina Fey to settle $79k workers’ compensation judgment

Comedienne Tina Fey was recently ordered by the New York Supreme Court to pay $79,000 for failing to provide workers’ compensation insurance to her employees, according to a report published on April 1.

According to reports, the order was issued to the 43-year-old actress on March 20. Fey reportedly failed to provide workers’ compensation insurance to her employees from November 2012 until February of this year. However, a spokeswoman for the comedienne stated that the notices had been sent by the New York Workers’ Compensation Board to an old mailing address and the issue was a result of a clerical error.

Though court documents failed to specify the type of employees that were affected, the spokeswoman said that the worker’s comp insurance never lapsed.

Unfortunately, many workers who do have workers’ compensation insurance struggle to actually get the benefits they need and deserve.
