Massage Therapists and Strippers Improperly Classified as Independent Contractors

Lawsuits are being brought against strip clubs in Massachusetts for improperly classifying its workers as independent contractors.  Employers only have to pay certain mandated benefits, including Worker’s Compensation coverage, to “employees”, but not to independent contractors.  At least one such establishment in Massachusetts was found to have incorrectly classified its workers.  Simply calling a worker an independent contractor does not make it so.  If an employer does such things as controlling the manner/method of work, controlling the hours worked, controlling the location of the job to be performed, etc., a worker is an employee, regardless of the employers “classification” of that person as an independent contractor.
