A stripper in New York, Crystal DiCesare, who worked for a company called "Dial-A-Dancer" sued her former employer for unpaid wages and overtime pay, claiming she worked 12-hour days and only made $200 per week. DiCesare also claims that the company's owner was also taking part of her tips, which she claims were around $500 per night.
Dial-A-Dancer claims DiCesare and all of its dancers are "independent contractors" which would make her exempt from wage and overtime laws. However, DiCesare is claiming she was misclassified because the company's owner chose what she wore and whether she could eat, in addition to having access and control over her tips.
