Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen Settle Class Action Suit With Former Interns
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have reportedly settled a class action lawsuit with a group of former interns.
According to court documents obtained by Entertainment Weekly, the sister moguls will likely pay up to $140,000 to interns who launched a class action suit against the Olsen twins' Dualstar Entertainment Group in 2015.
In the filing, the interns—then a group of 40 and now believed to be 185 individuals—claimed that they were either unpaid or paid less than minimum wage while working extended hours.
One of the lead plaintiffs in the suit claimed that she was "doing the work of three interns" in 2012, including "inputting data into spreadsheets, making tech sheets, running personal errands for paid employees, organizing materials, photocopying, sewing, pattern cutting, among other related duties."
The Olsens have not yet spoken publicly about the lawsuit.
