In a ruling that many might find counterintuitive, a New Jersey court has ruled that an adult dancer
is an employee of the establishment where she danced, and not an independent contractor, for
purposes of workers’ compensation. The court found that the establishment had the right to exercise

schedule and worked solely for tips, she “was not free to come and go as she pleased” once her shift
began, and she “was required to perform both pole and couch dances.”
