The Kansas Supreme Court held that exotic dancers in strip clubs are employees and NOT independent contractors. This ruling stems from a lawsuit brought by a former dancer for unemployment benefits. Although the dancers earned plenty of money via tips, a large portion of it went back to the club to pay for “rent[ing] space” to perform and penalty fees for failure to adhere to house rules.
