Workers’ comp suit against Jay-Z dropped
Last week the Workers’ Compensation Board of New York announced that its lawsuit against rapper Jay-Z, 42, will be dropped.
Jay-Z was originally sued for $18,000 after the board claimed he did not pay workers’ compensation for his domestic employees for three months in 2009. The singer adamantly denied the allegations, blaming the confusion on a clerical error.
Although the New York Supreme Court ordered Jay-Z to pay for his outstanding fines, his lawyers were able to prove that the $18,000 balance was indeed a clerical mistake. People close to Jay-Z have stated that he has never missed a workers’ compensation payment. A spokesperson from the board says it will drop the lawsuit.
