Tina Fey Fined By New York Workers Compensation Board
The New York Workers Compensation Board has fined a very unusual company- actually the actress Tina Fey.
According to an article in the Smoking Gun, Tina Fey of Saturday Night fame was hit with a $79,000 judgment by the New York Work Comp Board (5 pages) for having no Workers Compensation insurance.
The name of the production owned by Tina Fey is Little Stranger, Inc. However, the judgment was in Fey’s name only. The judgment was for failure to carry Workers Comp insurance.
It seems, as in many cases with this board, no one can exactly figure out how the $79,000 judgment was arrived at in the court documents. However, all of Fey’s appeals have now been exhausted which means it is pay-up time.
One has to wonder how the round number of $79,000 was arrived at in the judgment. A round number will usually mark an estimate, of sorts. Payroll (remuneration) and the associated premium charges are very rarely round numbers. This seems to be an estimate of charges. Look for Tina Fey to settle this one as soon as possible. Most Workers Compensation cases settle quickly regardless of the source.
