Cheerleader Sues Team Over Unfair Pay

July 30th, 2018

Philadelphia employment lawyers fight for fair wages and harassment free work zones.Winning a spot on a major sports team’s cheerleading squad is the pinnacle of success for a hopeful cheerleader. The women who aspire to this dream may have worked their entire lives preparing for the role. Most of them probably participated in many years of dance or gymnastics classes to develop the grace, agility, and the athletic requirements of cheering in the spotlight for a team. However, some who live that dream may find that they are not being fairly compensated, and they may even have to endure harassment from fans and others. A recent case illustrates this reality.

A former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader recently sued the team, claiming that the team failed to pay her minimum wage and overtime. She also alleged that she earned only one quarter of what the team mascot made, and less than the federal minimum wage, which violates both the Equal Pay Act and the Fair Labor Standards Act. She additionally claimed that she had endured physical assaults. The team, on the other hand, benefited and profited from the cheerleader’s image. The plaintiff hopes to right the injustices that so many cheerleaders have endured.
