An Attorney Who Understands Employment Law Issues for Dancers
A common way club managers and owners avoid paying you fairly and providing employee
rights and benefits, such as overtime, is to call you an independent contractor instead
of a club employee.
However, many factors do come into play in the way you should be classified as a
contractor of employee of a gentlemen's club, cabaret, or topless nude dance club:
Who sets your work schedule?
How is your routine managed?
How are missed days and tardiness handled?
Are you paid by hourly wage, daily wage, or weekly pay?
Do you get overtime, vacation, and sick pay?
How are prices and specials set? (2 for 1 dances, for example)
Your answers to the questions above may determine if you are being treated as an
independent contractor. If so, you are like an employee of the club without benefits
that you are entitled to under the law. Our law office has helped hundreds of people
and we can help you too.
What our office can do to help compensate you for the overtime pay and loss of benefits:
We can negotiate with your club management to improve your situation.
We can file a claim with the Labor Commission.
We can help you file an individual court claim or class-action claim.
Call Attorney Robert Starr to discuss your situation. We can answer your questions.
Your initial consultation will be free, informative, discreet, & confidential. Contact
us via email or 818.225.9040.
