Lisa Vanderpump filed a lawsuit for allegedly not paying SUR employees



Life is still not all rosé and diamonds at SUR.

Lisa Vanderpump and her husband Ken Todd were sued on Friday for allegedly not paying overtime pay to their employees at SUR, their restaurant famous for “Vanderpump Rules.”

In the application obtained by Page Six on Tuesday, former hostess Olivia Hanson claimed that she and other employees were forced to work more than eight hours a day, 40 hours a week or even seven consecutive working days without receiving adequate compensation.

The suit also did not properly claim restaurant owners staff hours, manipulated items and did not grant employees breaks for meals or rest.

Vanderpump’s business partners, Guillermo and Nathalie Zapata, have also been named in the suit. They have both performed on the Bravo show.

Vanderpump, 59, and Todd were also sued in January 2020 for failing to pay the minimum wage and overtime pay, for failing to provide meal breaks ̵

1; or compensation instead of breaks – at their various restaurants including Tom Tom, SUR, Pump and Villa Blanca. While Villa Blanca has since closed its doors, things are still going on.

The Vanderpump Dog Foundation was also sued by a former employee in January “because of the unbearable working conditions created by her boss, Martin Duarte and his superiors.”

That case is also ongoing.

Vanderpump’s lawyer did not return to us immediately.
