R&B and Hip Hop singer, R. Kelly is being sued by a former employee by the name of Anthony Navarro over overtime wages. The federal lawsuit alledges that Navarro worked more than 40 hours a week as a "runner" for R. Kelly, at times Navarro claims to have worked over 80 hours a week back in 2007.
The lawsuit also claims that Navarro was never paid time and a half overtime wages but just the normal wages. R. Kelly is named as the person in charge of the wages and compensation.
This is terrible if it is true. I really hope that Anthony Navarro will be fairly and fully compensated for all overtime he put in during his time working for R. Kelly. I can understand how frustrating it would be to not feel fully compensated for one's hard work especially when one is truly dedicated to what it is they are doing. What do you think?
