The suit is demanding back wages plus interest for the hours that she and her peers worked. The definitive amount will be determined at trial. It is estimated that over 500 people that interned for the company since 2007 could be eligible to join the claim.

Diddy is not named directly in the suit. Salaam says that she isn’t doing this for money.
“Money doesn’t mean anything to me,” said Salaam. “I’m taking this risk for all the interns out there.”
