Life beyond style

Kanye West and his adidas YEEZY fashion imprint are under investigation by the Department of Labor’s OSHA agency, after an employee was injured in West’s Calabasas office two months ago, reports TMZ.

According to the report, a large 3D printer fell on the foot of the employee, severely injuring the man, with speculation that his foot may have been amputated as a result of the injury.

The Occupational Safety and Health Association (OHSA) is trying to determine if there were any workplace violations that caused the accident, and if any repeated safety violations are found, adidas could end up paying up to $129,000 USD per violation.

Furthermore, the employee has not returned to work and might be proceeding to file a lawsuit soon. For the full story, head on over to TMZ.
