Louis CK filed the suit against the directors of three union-industry plans Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Manhattan using his actual name Louis Szekely as the owner of production company Pig Newton Inc.
Szekely is employed by Pig Newton under collective bargaining agreements with the Intl. Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees. The suit alleges that an audit showed it accurately reported all hours worked by the show's employees.
Katherine Orloff, a spokeswoman for the union, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The defendants are the boards of the Motion Picture Industry Pension Plan, the Motion Picture Industry Individual Account Plan, and the Motion Picture Industry Health Plan. The plans calculate the contributions based on full-time work rather than actual hours worked.
Szekley is the star, main writer, director and exec producer of the series, currently in production for a fourth season.
