The cheerleaders for the Oakland Raiders, the Raiderettes, filled a lawsuit in January against their Employer because the team failed to pay them for all of the time they worked, were not provided overtime pay, failed to provide meals and rest breaks, did not reimburse them for business expenses and took an unlawful amount of deductions from their wages. Each cheerleader signed an Employment Contract where they would be paid a flat fee of $125 per home game, or $1,250 per season. The issue is that there were so many additional hours for training and event appearances that they ended up receiving less than $5 per hour. The cheerleaders Employment Lawyers settled the case for $1.25 Million and also increased their salaries.
