Alanis Morissette Sued By Nanny Over Lack of Meal Breaks, Overtime Pay

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Alanis Morissette is being sued by a former nanny who alleges that the singer never paid her overtime or allowed her to take breaks during 12-hour shifts.

Morissette, 39, and husband Mario "Souleye" Treadway have been sued by ex-employee Bianca Cambeiro, who filed the claims in court papers Thursday.

Alanis Morissette, Husband

Cambeiro cared for the couple's son Ever, who turns three on Christmas of this year, 3-4 days a week. And boy, those 3-4 days a week were rough!

Bianca says in court documents that she began working for Alanis Morissette in August 2011 at their Brentwood, Calif., home for the rate of $25 an hour.

Sounds like a great gig, right? Not so much, Bianca says.

Asked why she wasn't being paid overtime, Alanis' accountant allegedly said, "We don't do that." And her complaints don't stop there by any means.

Cambeiro claims she was prohibited from leaving the baby's room while it was sleeping unless one of the parents or until the day shift nanny relieved her.

According to the documents, the ex-nanny seeks no less than $100,000 for a list of reasons, including emotional distress, attorney fees and lost wages.

As a non-exempt employee who worked over 10 hours a day, she claims she was legally entitled to a minimum of two 30-minute meal breaks each shift.

Morissette's camp has yet to respond to the lawsuit.
