Lady Gaga & the FLSA: A bad romance

by on
in Human Resources,Overtime Labor Laws

The former personal assistant to Lady Gaga was “figuratively, if not literally, always at (Gaga’s) side” and “on duty during all hours of each 24-hour day with no entitlement to breaks … or, at times, even sleep.” The assistant was even responsible for “ensuring the promptness of a towel following a shower.”

The problem, as the assistant’s lawsuit claims, is that Lady Gaga failed to pay her overtime. Now, she says, she’s owed hundreds of thousands of dollars.   

The lesson: Paying someone a salary doesn’t automatically make them exempt from the FLSA and overtime laws. Look at the duties and compare them to our Exempt vs. Nonexempt Checklist.
