‘Black-ish’ Star Tracee Ellis Ross Accused Of Labor Code Violations By Ex-Assistant



The former assistant is suing Ross for declaratory relief and damages, claiming she was “denied meal and rest breaks” while working for the star. The ex-assistant claims she worked for the actress from December 2019 to November 2020 and regularly worked (or was on call) for more than 8 hours a day and/or 40 hours a week.

She is now seeking damages for “Labor Code Violations” in excess of $25,000. At the time, the ex-assistant claims she was making up to $100,000 a year, but shouldn’t have been classified as an “exempt employee.” The lawsuit alleges, “Specifically, they illegally paid her a salary, without regard to the number of hours that she worked, the number of hours that she was on call, the overtime and double-time hours that she works, or the meal and rest periods that she missed.”

The ex-assistant worked seven consecutive days a week, and often more than 12 hours in a shift.
It’s unclear if the assistant was fired, or quit, and details behind the issues with her employment.

The ex-assistant claims the actress and her company “failed to accurately maintain” her employment records and “knowingly and intentionally failed to furnish her with wage statements that accurately reflected all of the information.”
