A dancer at a downtown gentleman's club has filed a lawsuit against the business for wage theft.
Attorney Chuck Yezbak s representing the woman, who's referred to as "Jane Doe" in the suit.
She's employed as a dancer at Deja Vu on Broadway. She said the company violated the Fair Labor Standard Act by misleading workers into becoming "independent contractors" so that they wouldn't have to pay dancers minimum wage.
The lawsuit also alleges dancers had to pay to work and pay for business expenses, like costumes.
NewsChannel5 has reached out to Deja Vu and its owners. We have not heard back.
