Alanis Morissette Sued by Former Nanny

Williams & Hirakawa 2012Alanis Morissette and her husband Mario Treadway are being sued by a woman who once worked for them as a nanny.

People magazine cites court documents filed by the woman, Bianca Cambeiro, in which she claims she was not given overtime pay nor allowed meal breaks during 12-hour shifts babysitting the couple's son, Ever.

Cambeiro says she started working for the couple in August 2011 at their Brentwood, CA, home for $25 an hour and claims she wasn't allowed to leave the baby's room while the child slept unless one of the parents was present or until a day shift nanny arrived to relieve her. The documents claim that, under the law, she should have been given at least two 30-minute meal breaks per shift.

The filings also allege that when Cambeiro asked Alanis' accountant why she wasn't being paid overtime, the accountant responded, "We don't do that."

The former nanny is seeking at least $100,000 for emotional distress and to cover attorney fees and lost wages.  So far, reps for the singer have not responded to requests for comment.
