HR Strange But True!
January 24, 2002

Two exotic dancers were the losers in a recent ruling by the National Labor Relations Board, according to CareerJournal, a site operated by the Wall Street Journal.

The NLRB voted 2-1 that strippers can't include tips when asking the board to rule on a labor dispute. That's important because the board's jurisdiction for retail businesses begins at $500,000 in annual revenue.

In this case, it meant excluding $162,000 in tips given at the strippers' club during the year in question, leaving the club's revenue at $352,200.

CareerJournal reports that strippers' organizing efforts have received attention - beyond the prurient kind - because they illustrate the occasionally fuzzy line between an employer-employee relationship and a contractor relationship.

The two strippers in this case alleged they were illegally deprived of their jobs because of their work with the Exotic Dancers Alliance, a San Francisco group that wants to improve working conditions.
