Lapdancer loses sacking claim
Friday 21 December 2012
A lapdancer who wants to make an unfair dismissal claim lost a legal fight today with a firm that runs “gentlemen's clubs”.
The Court of Appeal was asked to decide whether Nadine Quashie had been an employee or self-employed when she worked at the Stringfellows and Angels clubs in London.
Three appeal judges - Lord Justice Ward, Lord Justice Elias and Lord Justice Pitchford - ruled today that she had not been an employee and therefore could not make an unfair dismissal claim at an employment tribunal.
Ms Quashie, who is in her early 30s and lives in London, argued that she was employed and could therefore make a claim for unfair dismissal after being sacked for gross misconduct.
Owner Stringfellows argued that she was self-employed and could not make a claim.
