Jay-Z Fights 40/40 Club Wage Scandal

jay2.jpgIn May, former waitresses at Jay-Z’s 40/40 Club, Sheron Branch and Kishma Pickering, filed a lawsuit against Hova and the club’s management, claiming she and other employees were paid below minimum wage. Now, according to the New York Post, S. Carter and his team of lawyers are fighting back, issuing a counterclaim in Manhattan federal court yesterday (August 7) claiming Branch, “abandoned her employment…by failing to show up for work as scheduled, without calling in” on Christmas in 2006. According to the suit, Branch also stole the passwords to the 40/40 Club’s YouTube and MySpace accounts and deleted promotional videos worth approximately $20,000. Attorneys for Jay-Z also filed papers in federal court on July 30 claiming Jay is merely a shareholder in the popular sports bar and has no involvement in the nightspot’s day-to-day operations.
