Robert De Niro once filed a $6 Million lawsuit against his Ex-employee for Binge-watching Friends at Work

In addition to being one of the most significant actors of the modern era, Robert De Niro also runs a production company. On August 16, 2019, The production company filed a lawsuit against one of the actor’s personal assistants. 

According to reports, Chase Robinson was let go because she spent much time watching Netflix rather than working. She binged-watched 55 episodes of the Friends television series in only four days, 20 episodes of Arrested Development, and 10 episodes of Schitt’s Creek

As if that weren’t tolerant enough, she treated herself with caviar for lunch and a meal at Paola’s, a renowned New York cafe. Evidently, all at the expense of the business.

According to the lawsuit, “viewing Netflix programs was not in any way linked to Robinson’s employment duties and obligations and, on information and belief, was done for her enjoyment, amusement, and pleasure at times when she was being paid to work.”

Robert De Niro had promoted the assistant to vice president of the business with a contract that would have paid him $ 300,000 a year. However, He was the one who accused her of theft and pursued a six-million-dollar lawsuit. A total of $30,000 in dining costs and $30,000 in Uber fees have been determined; all of these costs were covered by the production company. 

Robinson said she would have de-emphasized the reports of the charges billed to her in her resignation email from April by characterizing them as “ridiculous” issues. Later, she wrote a letter of recommendation for herself, but De Niro would not approve it. The woman unquestionably left the group of people.
