Lawsuits Against Various Cosmetology Schools Nationwide
Our law firm, in collaboration with other law firms throughout the United States, is currently representing students of cosmetology schools who were required to perform cosmetology services in the schools' for-profit salons on paying customers while not being paid any wages, at all, for their work.
These school salons (which the schools often call "clinics") operate just like normal commercial salons by requiring the students to perform salon services on paying customers. They also often require students to "up-sell" services and retail products and perform other "commercial salon" tasks, such as working the reception desk, washing and folding laundry, cleaning the salon, and stocking products. We believe there is no difference under the minimum wage law between these "school salon student workers" and "commercial salon workers" and these students are entitled to a minimum hourly wage for their salon working hours.
These cases are progressing through litigation. Check back here for case updates.
