The loss of a job can be a devastating event in a person's life. Financially, job loss can be incredibly stressful and create uncertainty. While there are many reasons for losing a job, a person should never lose their job for illegal reasons, or be wrongfully terminated. In such cases, a lawsuit may be brought in order to be properly compensated.
Recently, Usher's former nanny has filed a lawsuit claiming that the R&B music artist did not pay her overtime prior to firing her. The nanny further claims that Usher did not treat her properly, which included caring for Usher's two children aged four and five years old. Usher has full custody of both children. The employee claims she was hired initially as a part time nanny, but would frequently work over 40 hours a week in violation of her employee rights. Additionally, the woman claims that while she often worked overtime, she was not compensated. As a result, the former nanny brought both a wrongful termination suit and failure to pay wages suit for a six figure amount. A source connected to Usher has called the lawsuit frivolous.
