Tina Fey hit with $79,000 judgment for failing to pay workers compensation insurance: court docs

Story originally appeared in MYDailyNews.com.

 Television star Tina Fey was hit with a $79,000 judgment by the New York State Workers Compensation Board in court documents posted this week in Manhattan court, but the “Bossypants” author insisted Friday that she is up to date with her payments to the state. Tina may need the services of a San Francisco Workers Compensation Lawyer that specializes in workers comp claims in California.

Court papers show that the state sent Fey a bill in February indicating that she owed the $79,000 for a period covering Nov. 20, 2012 through Feb. 2, 2014.

The bill was sent to 125 W. 55 St.

An aide said that is the address of Fey’s accountant, who moved out of those offices six years ago.

Fey’s spokeswoman Cara Tripicchio said the “30 Rock” star “has proper and current insurance covering all employees and at no time has worker's compensation payment lapsed.

“The confusion seems to be a result of a clerical error with the NYS WC Board,” she said.

“They have been sending notifications to an old address for an accountant that moved offices almost six years ago.”

Tripicchio said state officials could have “avoided this unnecessary situation,” if they had just requested “verification of paperwork, that does exist and is readily available” to prove Fey has a current insurance policy on her employees.

There was no immediate response to Fey's claim from the governor's press office.
