Why It's Important to Give Clubs the Benefit of Doubt

When I start a new job at a strip club, I don't always know if they will classify correctly. There is a possibility that a club will accurately classify me as an employee and recognize my rights. There is also the possibility that a club will not enforce rules consistent with employee status, and that I will have so many freedoms within a club that I truly am an independent contractor. The latter is almost never the case, but it's not impossible.

It's important to give clubs the benefit of doubt that they will do the right thing, and classify correctly. It's also important to understand all of the factors in the Economic Realities test, to know when misclassification is occurring. I'm no ideologue when it comes to strip club classification. I just want them to do the right thing when it comes to worker rights.
