Former Raiderette Files Class-Action Lawsuit Against the Team

As a proposed $1.25 million settlement for cheerleader wage theft pends approval in an Alameda County court, another class action lawsuit over pay and compensation has been filed against the Oakland Raiders by a former Raiderette. The latest lawsuit, filed on January 26, 2015 against the Raiders and the NFL on behalf of San Benito County resident Susie Sanchez and Raiderettes from the last four years, goes further than the previous lawsuit by alleging cheerleaders were denied media exposure opportunities promised to them in employment agreements. Sanchez was a 37-year-old rookie on the 2011-2012 squad when she was dubbed the grandmother cheerleader because she was, in fact, a grandmother. She was in talks with Lifetime that year for a program on being a cheerleading grandmother but the Raiders shut it down because it wasn't going to benefit its organization. In September, the Raiders reached a proposed settlement $1.25 million settlement in a class-action lawsuit filed by two former cheerleaders to compensate unpaid wages and overtime. Before the Raiders raised Raiderette salaries last summer, the cheerleaders were paid $125 a home game, and were unpaid for post regular season games and the numerous practices and events they are required to attend. Their pay worked out to less than $6.50 an hour at most, Bradshaw said. Minimum wage in California was raised to $8 an hour on Jan. 1, 2008, and to $9 an hour on July 1, 2014. Raiders cheerleaders also spend $3,000 to $4,000 a season out of pocket on tans, hair styles, manicures, and makeup and other beauty-related services to maintain an appearance demanded of them.

NFL Players Association Files Lawsuit against the NFI over Adrian Peterson Ruling

The NFL Players Association filed a lawsuit against the NFL in response to the league's decision to deny Adrian Peterson's season-long suspension appeal. The NFL denied the Minnesota Vikings running back's request to overturn his suspension for violating the league's personal conduct policy. He was suspended without pay in mid-November after agreeing to a plea deal on child abuse charges. The players association, in its lawsuit, argued that NFL executive Harold Henderson, who issued the report denying Peterson's request, was acting unfairly and on contradiction to the collective bargaining agreement. The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court in Minneapolis, called Henderson 'partial' and said he 'exceeded the scope of his authority.' According to the court filing, the players association argues Peterson was unfairly held to standards implemented in the NFL's new personal conduct policy, which was announced, months after Peterson was accused of punishing his then-4-year-old son with a switch, or small branch, leaving him with marks on his body.
