PHILADELPHIA — An exotic dancer has filed a class-action lawsuit against SRM Enterprises LLC, citing alleged unpaid wages, violation of applicable minimum wage law and violation of Workers' Compensation acts for failing to pay its performers a regular hourly rate.
Nafeesa Hill filed a complaint on behalf of similarly situated employees on April 27 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania alleging that the company, which operates the Vanity Grand Cabaret club in Southeast Philadelphia, failed to properly compensate the plaintiff for her work.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she was damaged from not being paid hourly wages at the legal rate. The plaintiff holds SRM Enterprises responsible because it allegedly failed to pay standard compensation to the plaintiff, instead relying on customer tips.
The plaintiff seeks unpaid minimum wages of $7.25 for every hour worked, reimbursement, interest, liquidated damages, court costs and any further relief this court grants. She is represented by Peter Winebrake, R. Andrew Santillo and Mark J. Gottesfeld of Winebrake & Santillo LLC in Dresher.
