In her lawsuit, Labrie claims that Love intentionally did not pay her after she refused to commit fraudulent, unlawful, and unethical acts ordered by the latter. Labrie stated that Love asked her to counterfeit legal documents and hire a computer hacker. However, it was not specified why Love needed a hacker or what documents did Love attempted to falsify.
Labrie further claimed that she used to work for Love for 60 hours a week during her employment. Labrie had been working for Love since 2010 until she was fired in July 2011 after complaining about not being paid.
The lawsuit is seeking for unspecified damages.
On the other hand, the rock singer’s spokesperson, Steve Honig, said that the allegations set against Love are baseless and without merit. In fact, Honig believes that Labrie’s allegations are nothing but the murmuring of a disgruntled former employee.
At present, Labrie is working on a book entitled “Get Me a Xanax”. Allegedly, the book is set to reveal the darkest secret of the chaotic rock widow.
Courtney Love was married to Nirvanasinger, Kurt Cobain, who passed away in 1994 after committing suicide. Love is also a mother to 19-year-old Frances Bean Cobain.
In an at-will state like California, it might be difficult for victims like Labrie to prove a claim. Nevertheless, victims should not be discouraged from pursuing their claims particularly if there are valid reasons to file a claim under both state and federal laws.
In such cases, a California wrongful termination lawyer can provide legal advice and assistance to your claims. There are some cases wherein employers can be charged with wrongful termination even in at-will employment settings.
