According to documents obtained by Radar, the 40-year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashians star is scoffing at the idea she didn't follow the law when it came to treatment of her staff.

Kim — who was sued by several employees in May — says she went above and beyond for her staff, claiming she "made available meal periods and rest breaks and, to the extent Plaintiffs did not take a meal period or rest break, Plaintiffs were fully compensated."
