Maynard also claims she was not she was not properly compensated for working a sixth day a week, and that since parting ways with White, has not received all her wages, including vacation pay.

Maynard is asking the court to award her all wages owed, as well as penalties and attorney’s fees.

The 94-year-old former Golden Girls star did not immediately respond to a request for comment, and her representatives have not publicly commented on the lawsuit.
