The Siegel Law Group and Lee & Braziel LLP joined forces to file a lawsuit against Clubhouse Gentleman’s Club in Dallas on behalf of current and former exotic dancers who worked at the adult entertainment establishment. The Clubhouse lawsuit alleges that Clubhouse misclassified its exotic dancers to deprive them of earn wages.
The Clubhouse lawsuit specifically alleges that Clubhouse:
- Misclassified its hourly dancers as independent contractors;
- Failed to pay dancers an hourly wage;
- Charged dancers “House Fees;”
- Required Dancers to share tips with DJs and “House Moms;”
- Charged Dancers for failing to work on certain days; and
- Failed to pay Exotic Dancers minimum wage in addition to tips.

Please note that if you are a current or former Clubhouse dancer, we recommend that you contact us immediately to pursue your unpaid overtime claim. Failure to do so may disallow you from pursuing your wages in the Clubhouse Lawsuit. Dancers only have up to three years to pursue their overtime claims from the date of a particular wage violation to file suit. This means that dancers who do not act quickly may lose money each week they decide not to assert their claims.
