Jay-Z sued for workers’ compensation

Rapper Jay-Z is being sued the the Workers Compensation Board of New York for not paying three months worth of workers’ compensation insurance in 2009.

The lawsuit claims that Jay-Z, real name Shawn Carter, owes $18,000 for the three months of nonpayment. The workers’ compensation covered domestic employees of Carter, including chefs, cooks, maids, and drivers. His lapse was only temporary as the 42 year-old musician has continued to pay workers’ compensation except for the outstanding $18,000.

Carter has responded to the lawsuit, claiming that it is a clerical error and denies he has ever failed to pay his employees workers’ compensation.
