E! Fashion Police Writers File Unpaid Wages and Overtime Lawsuit

- by

Los Angeles, CA: Writers on the hit television show E! Fashion Police have filed an unpaid overtime complaint alleging the show ignores the California laws that require an employer to pay hourly employees their regular wage rate for all time worked in an eight-hour period. Eight writers have filed a claim alleging E! owns them more than $1 million in back wages.

According to a statement issued by the Writers Guild of America West, "… the law requires paying overtime for employment beyond eight hours in any workday or more than 40 hours in any workweek."

Eliza Skinner, one of the writers involved, told the Huffington Post "The most I've been paid for a show has been for eight hours of work... In reality, I put in anywhere from 12 to 32 additional hours on each show – time I should have been compensated for."

The show is hosted by Joan Rivers.
