I spent 26 minutes in a 30 minute VIP room the customer got upset around 26 minutes after being inside the room because he wasn’t getting sex. My club ended up refunding him his money but they also took the 450$ that I earned from the room. I completed my job and I feel it’s illegal for the club to take back my worked for money for the VIP
Do you have an employment contract that discusses refunds? If not, does the club have a general policy? Is this it? I'm sure this isn't the first time a client walked out upset and demanded a refund.
This isn't an issue of "legal" or "illegal" -- it's about what the club sets as a policy and if they apply that policy fairly among all employees. You would have a claim if they took your money, but let someone else under the same circumstances keep hers.
Be aware that this response does not create an attorney/client relationship. I live and work in Massachusetts and may or may not know the local laws where you live. I hope people find my responses not only helpful but somewhat entertaining as well. If you rely on this as legal advice, remember the old saying, "You get what you pay for."
The answer is unfortunately probably yes. If you have an employment contract that does not allow them to do it then they are in violation of the employment contract and you would have a cause of action for violation of the employment contract. If you don't have an employment contract you would fall under general wage and hour laws. Since Kentucky follows federal minimum wage of $7.25/hr if the taking of the "wages" makes you fall under minimum wage for the hours you worked for the week then that would be a wage and hour violation. Otherwise if just a policy then you would have to show policy is not uniformly enforced and would have to go through Kentucky Labor cabinet to file a complaint that you weren't paid your agreed upon wage.
