Case Update: August 2015
We currently represent an exotic entertainer who was classified as an independent contractor by Sapphires Gentleman's Club in Las Vegas. The entertainer claims she was actually an employee entitled to the protection of the Fair Labor Standards Act. Accordingly, she brought the case on behalf of herself and other dancers, and she seeks to recover the dancers' unpaid wages, illegally taken tip-outs, and money paid for imposed fines. The entertainer will seek conditional certification so that other entertainers can be apprised of their rights in this litigation and be given the right to join.
