NFL Cheerleader Files Lawsuit Over Alleged Wage Violations


According to USA Today, a cheerleader who said the franchise is violating federal wage laws is suing the Cincinnati Bengals.

The lawsuit, filed on February 11, is attempting to gain class action status by covering all Ben-Gals cheer squad members dating back to 2011.

In her lawsuit, Alexa Brenneman, 24, said that squad members put in more than 300 hours a season attending mandatory practices and charity events and performing required volunteer work, but were paid a flat rate of $90 a game for cheering at 10 games during the 2013 season. These wages reportedly violate minimum wage laws.
