Tina Fey fined $79 000

Los Angeles - Tina Fey has been ordered to pay the New York State Workers' Compensation Board $79 000.

Officials filed a "final notice" judgement against the 30 Rock creator and star, 43, in the State Supreme Court in Manhattan last week for "having defaulted in payment" of her workers' compensation insurance.

According to legal documents, obtained by TheSmokingGun.com, the board claims that, up until last month, the comedienne had not carried the insurance, which provides wage replacement and medical benefits to employees injured in the course of employment, since November 2012.

The documents show that Tina previously appealed the fine but a state lawyer noted that, "appeals before the Board have been exhausted", and it was ruled she must pay the money.

The judgment is in Tina's name and not that of her production company, Little Stranger Inc, which produced the NBC comedy 30 Rock, and is currently developing other TV and film projects.

Court records did not detail how state officials arrived at the $79 000 figure, though it represents "Awards and Penalties" levied against the star.

Tina is currently shooting her upcoming sitcom, Tooken in New York, which stars 33-year-old actress Ellie Kemper as Kimmy, who escapes from a doomsday cult and starts a new life in the city.
