In June 2012, a fair pay collective/class action case that had been filed against Club Onyx settled. The strippers settled the case for $1.55 million. The strippers brought the case complaining that they were illegally classified as independent contractors as opposed to employees. The dancers claimed that they were actually employees – not independent contractors – and as employees they were entitled to minimum wage for each hour they worked. The settlement closed the matter for the 73 strippers who participated in the case.
If you worked at a strip club within the last 3 years and were treated as an independent contractor, you could be entitled to the recovery of lost wages.
