LOS ANGELES (CNS) - A dancer who was hired to appear on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show'' is suing the afternoon television talk show host for alleged failure to pay wages and other alleged violations of the state Labor Code.

A representative for DeGeneres could not be immediately reached for comment on Raphaelle Bardet's Los Angeles Superior Court lawsuit, which also names as defendants Wad Productions Inc. and A Very Good Production.

She seeks unspecified damages in the proposed class-action suit filed Friday.

According to her court papers, Bardet was hired on Feb. 25 to dance as a background talent at a fee of $1,375, but she was denied her full wages, as well as meal and rest breaks and overtime.

The suit's proposed class includes all non-exempt workers on the show for the four years leading up to the filing of the Bardet suit.
