If the bands are no longer making you dance and you’re in Kansas, don’t worry, because you’re entitled to unemployment, as the Kansas Supreme Court has decided that exotic dancers are employees of the clubs they work at, and not just contractors.

The case reached the Kansas Supreme Court when a dancer from Club New Orleans in Topeka was denied unemployment, because her work was considered contract work.

The club claims she “rented” her space on the stage, and that she earned her money through tips.

The court decided, however, that based on the club’s rules, the dancers were employees of the club rather than contractors.

“[The ruling] was incorrectly decided,” the club’s attorney whined.

Strippers everywhere are clapping in response to the ruling… their cheeks, that is.
