Tick, tick, tick – BOOM! The producers of the Wendy Williams Show play no games when it comes to being sued.
Earlier this year, Anthony Taft, a former intern of the Wendy Williams Show filed a class action lawsuit against the show alleging that he and the other interns were entitled to wages for the work they did on the talk show. According to court docs, Tart stated that The Wendy Williams Show violated New York labor laws by not paying them wages for the hours they worked. He reportedly explained his duties on the show included washing dishes, picking up coffee and other supplies and taking out the trash. The complaint says that the work the show required them to do did not fit the standards for an unpaid internship, which stated interns that weren’t compensated had to receive some sort of academic or vocational training.
