A proposed class and collective action has been filed in Oklahoma against the club Midway Island under federal and state wage and hour laws. According to the suit, the club intentionally misclassified its dancers as independent contractors – meaning they were denied minimum wages and other benefits typically awarded to employees. The suit also claims that dancers had to split tips with managers, doormen, DJs and other employees who usually do not receive tips in violation of federal labor law.
