‘Canadian Singer’ Celine Dion, reports are that she is being sued by an ex-employee. The person in question ‘Keith Sturtevant has filed suit against her on June 28, 2012. Claims are that the singer along with her husband René Angélil do owe him back overtime wages.
It had been in March 2009 when the handyman had allegedly been hired to do regular maintenance work to the couple’s Florida mansion. Sturtevant claims that he had fixed ice makers, cleaned house shutters, built stages and ran errands for the pair, TMZ reports.
The suit alleges they,
”improperly and illegally designated [Sturtevant] as an exempt employee”, meaning they simply gave him the “manager” title to avoid paying him overtime.
Sturtevant claims he,
”did not have the power to hire or fire employees” and is owed wages because he regularly worked over 40 hours per week.
The suit alleges that Dion and Angélil improperly listed other workers as “exempt employees” as well.
The couple have not yet responded to the claims.
