Exotic Dancers BRITTANY THOMPSON, JENNIFER HIGHT, KATHERINE BELLOWS, and DANIELLE McELROY have recently filed suit with ATLATA gentlemen's club, DIAMOND CLUB, located at 1715 NORTHSIDE Dr. NW, for being shorted what was owed to them outside of the dollar bills on the floor!!!
"The women are seeking the return of unpaid wages, alleged illegal kickback payments, interest, attorney’s fees and costs.They are also seeking class-action status to cover about 200 more current and former dancers who have worked at the club over the past three years.
The plaintiffs, some of whom have worked at the club since 2009, said their job was to perform as nude dancers and provide other entertainment to customers. They claim the club, however, has classified them as independent contractors rather than employees.
The suit filed in U.S. District Court in Atlanta claims Diamond has “maintained a pattern and practice of not paying wages, not paying for overtime wages, failing to provide proper time for required lunch and rest breaks and otherwise failing to provide statutorily mandated wages and compensation.”The ladies are also complaining about various taxes and tariffs for which they are made to be responsible.
This includes: 1.) 10 percent for having a DJ spin their songs while they are performing, 2.) 10 percent of their tips, and fees for the manager, 3.) VIP sales, credit cards and late-arrival and early-leave fees.
