Mallory Musallam Files Class Action Lawsuit Against CBS Broadcasting and CBS Corp
Sep 10 14
Mallory Musallam filed a class action lawsuit last week against CBS Broadcasting, CBS Corp., and the late night host's Worldwide Pants, for compensation for the time she worked as an intern on the show, as well as compensation for everyone else who ever interned there without pay. Musallam's suit claims she worked full 40-hour weeks without ever receiving any 'academic or vocational training' while at the Late Show. The suit comes as ICM Partners is fighting off a similar class action suit of its own, and filed a motion to dismiss the action last week. But last year, a federal judge found interns working on Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan were actually employees under the definition of the Fair Labor Standards Act and New York Labor Law.
