Lisa Vanderpump And Ken Todd Hit With Class Action Lawsuit Over Allegedly Not Paying SUR Restaurant Employees!

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Lisa Vanderpump and her husband, Ken Todd, are being sued by several former SUR employees.

According to the court documents obtained by Us Weekly on Tuesday, August 4, Olivia Beverly Hanson filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of herself and others who previously worked at SUR Restaurant on Friday, July 31, accusing the couple of breaking several California labor laws, including failing to pay overtime wages.

“For at least four years prior to the filing of this action and continuing to present, defendants have had a policy or practice of failing to pay overtime wags to Plaintiff and other non-exempt employees,” the docs state, claiming that employees “routinely [worked] over eight hours per day, 40 hours per week and seven consecutive work days in a work week without being properly compensated for hours worked in excess.”

The docs also allege that Vanderpump and Todd and their partners, Guillermo Zapata and Nathalie Pouille-Zapata, failed to “accurately track and/or pay for all hours actually worked” and allegedly manipulated or edited “time records to show lesser hours than actually worked during the pay period, to the detriment of Plaintiff and other situated employees.”

The legal filing comes after another former employee, Adam Pierce Antoine, took action against the reality couple for similar accusations. According to court documents obtained by Us Weekly in January, Antoine alleged Vanderpump and Todd were “not paying wages” “failing to pay minimum wages” or “providing meal breaks.”

While the case is ongoing, a source downplayed the allegations to 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.”
