Tina Fey has been fined $79,000. It is said that the comedian and writer known for her work on comedy Saturday Night Live was handed over an order to pay the New York State Workers’ Compensation Board this amount that is owed by her. |The forty three year Muppets Most Wanted star had a final notice filed against her by officials in the State Supreme Court in Manhattan this past week stating she had defaulted in payment of her workers’ compensation insurance.
According to legal documents, obtained by TheSmokingGun.com, the board claims tha/t, up until last month, the comedienne had not carried the insurance, which provides wage replacement and medical benefits to employees injured in the course of employment, since November 2012.
The documents show that Tina previously appealed the fine but a state lawyer noted that, ”appeals before the Board have been exhausted,” and it was ruled she must pay the money.
The judgment is in Tina’s name and not that of her production company, Little Stranger Inc., which produced the NBC comedy ’30 Rock,’ and is currently developing other TV and film projects.
Court records did not detail how state officials arrived at the $79,000 figure, though it represents ”Awards and Penalties” levied against the star.
At this time she is in the middle of filming ‘Tooken’ a sitcom.
