An exotic dancer at Philadelphia’s Gold Club can sue under the Fair Labor Standards Act, following a ruling by a federal appeals court panel. Gold Club owners required the dancer to sign a contract to lease space on stage for her performances. In court, the owners argued the lease’s arbitration clause barred her from suing.
Judges hearing the case noted the very clear statement that the arbitration agreement did not apply to employment disputes and ruled the dancer could proceed with her wage-and-hour lawsuit against the club.
