Charging a Fee for Coming to Work

Can my boss charge me a fee to come to work?

 

As silly as this question sounds, this is the reality for exotic dancers.  They are frequently classified as “independent contractors” even though they are strictly controlled and work at the employer’s locations.   They are also charged a fee to work.  Of course, this is illegal.
Another court recently ruled that exotic dancers are in fact employees.  See Attorney Hayber’s blog about it here.
