CINCINNATI (AP) - A Cincinnati Bengals cheerleader is accusing the team in a lawsuit of violating federal wage laws.
Alexa Brenneman says in the complaint that cheerleaders put in more than 300 hours attending mandatory practices and charity events and performing required volunteer work.
The lawsuit filed Tuesday says squad members are paid a flat rate of $90 a game for cheering at 10 games during the 2013 season. It also says the 24-year-old Brenneman was paid $2.85 an hour when the Ohio minimum wage in 2013 was $7.85.
The Cincinnati Enquirer reports (http://cin.ci/1eT6YR9 ) that Brenneman seeks an end to the alleged violations along with unpaid wages, attorney fees and court costs.
The Bengals said the team will address the lawsuit in due course.
