Dancers working in strip clubs, nude and topless dance clubs
The laws for meal and rest breaks are usually very simple: employees are entitled
to at least one 10 minute rest period for every 4 hours worked and employees working
more than 5 hours in one workday are entitled to one meal period of at least 30 minutes.
There are exceptions, but rarely are the properly used in dance clubs. Many strip
club owners and managers will improperly classify your employment status to avoid
giving you breaks, and may even restrict your meal break and not allow you to leave
and return to the club.
At the Los Angeles Law Office of Robert L. Starr we understand how the meal and rest
period laws should be applied to your situation at a gentlemen's club.
Your rest break should allow you personal time, away from work distractions
Your meal break should be at least 30 minutes- you don't have to stay at the club
Club managers often break these rules to get more work out of you.
Fines and punishment can be successfully obtained- you may get compensated
If you are not receiving proper meal and rest breaks as a showgirl, exotic dancer,
or club hostess, you should contact our office today.
We can answer your questions. Your initial consultation will be free, informative,
discreet, & confidential. Contact us via email or 818.225.9040.
