Judges Rule That NFL Cheerleaders & Property Preservation Mechanics Are “Employees”

If the Buffalo Bills cheerleaders have to live by a strict code of conduct that dictates their appearance, eating habits — and even how they use feminine products — then they also have the right to sue their football team over lousy pay, a New York state judge ruled.

The Buffalo Bills had argued that the cheerleaders had no labor rights under state law because they were “independent contractors,” not employees.

The New York Post reports that Erie County Judge Timothy Drury disagreed, saying there was nothing “independent” about an official rulebook that governs the women’s personal and professional lives down to their underwear.

Two federal district judges have ruled that property preservation mechanics are employees and not independent contractors. The world is changing. Are you ready for change.
