Uma Thurman has been fined $72,000 for failing to adequately provide for her employees.

The 'Kill Bill' actress was issued with the penalty by the Workmen's Compensation Board of the State of New York in March 2013 after being found to have failed to carry workers compensation insurance between December 15 2011 and December 14 2012.

And documents obtained by show a judge has ruled she must pay the fine, as well as acquire workmen's compensation insurance that was in line with New York State laws.

The 43-year-old actress - who has children Maya, 14, and Levon, 10, with ex-husband Ethan Hawke, and Luna, 18 months, with partner ARPAD BUSSON - recently splashed out $10 million on a new apartment in an exclusive New York complex that was previously owned by best-selling novelist Barbara Taylor Bradford and her filmmaker husband Robert.

Uma had to pass rigorous home co-operative board approvals before being given the go-ahead to continue with the sale.

The 'Nymphomaniac' actress sold her seven-bedroom New York townhouse for $12 million last year.

The River House complex where her new apartment is located is so exclusive actresses and socialites such as Diane Keaton and Gloria Vanderbilt have been refused permission to move into the building.

Legendary star Joan Crawford reportedly commissioned a neon Pepsi sign which is visible to River House residents across the East River because she was so furious at having her application vetoed.

However, the board are said to have slightly relaxed their tough approval process.
