Chef sues Saudi prince over onerous work schedule

September 28, 2009 12:00:00 AM PDT
A chef is suing a Saudi Arabian prince, alleging that he routinely worked up to 14 hours a day with no overtime pay or time off at the prince's Beverly Hills estate. Pedro Gomez filed the lawsuit against Prince Saud bin Faisal bin Abdul Aziz al Saud, his wife and daughter last Wednesday in Los Angeles Superior Court.

The 69-year-old prince, who is foreign minister of Saudi Arabia, could not be immediately reached for comment.

Gomez says he worked for the prince from 1999 to March 2009, when he was fired.

He says he prepared three meals a day for 30 people without meal breaks, rest periods or overtime pay.
