An award-winning Toronto-based production company behind a slew of popular reality shows is facing a $35-million class-action lawsuit over alleged employment standards violations.

 

 

 

A news release says law firm Cavalluzzo L.L.P. filed the suit in an Ontario court on Friday against Insight Productions.

The company has worked on series including “The Amazing Race Canada,” “Big Brother Canada” and “Battle of the Blades.”

CWA/SCA Canada says it and fellow union IATSE support the suit, which is seeking damages on behalf of independent contractors and current and former employees.

The suit claims Insight owes hundreds of workers unpaid overtime, vacation pay, and holiday premiums because of contracts that did not comply with Ontario’s Employment Standards Act. The allegations have not been proven in court.

Insight Productions says the proceedings initiated against it are “without merit” and the company will “vigorously defend” itself against the allegations.
