Dr. Dre and his wife, Nicole, are accused of not giving enough rest breaks to their housekeeping staff nor paying for these breaks as the law dictates they should. They have been accused of running a very restrictive work regimen in their household.
Two of their former staff members, Ines Cornejo and Diana Brenes, have joined to motion a lawsuit against Dre and his wife for their negligence. Cornejo worked for them from September 2015 to 2018 while Brenes worked for them from September 2010 to October 2017.
Cornejo specifically confirms that her meal breaks were frequently interrupted or pushed later in the shift. She says that sometimes her meal breaks were even cut short entirely. Hence, the former employees are now suing for a “failure to provide meal and rest periods, as well as several other labor violations.” Yikes Dre!
Brenes, who worked as a housekeeper and cook, made similar claims. She affirms that she was not given proper meal and rest breaks and says her meal breaks were often cut short as well.
The two are seeking unspecified damages.
