The Cincinnati Bengals Agrees to Pay More Than $250,000 to Settle Class-Action Lawsuit

The Cincinnati Bengals tentatively agreed to pay more than $250,000 to settle a class-action lawsuit brought by a former Ben-Gal cheerleader alleging that the team violated federal minimum wage laws. Springboro native Alexa Brenneman and all members of the Ben-Gals from 2011 to 2013 would receive at least $2,500 each per season in back wages., according to a proposed settlement filed in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio. As the lead name in the Fair Labor Standards Act lawsuit, Brenneman, the 2008 Springboro High School graduate, would receive an additional $5,000 from the Bengals. None of the former Ben-Gals from those seasons have to file a lawsuit to get paid. The joint motion for settlement states that the Bengals could walk away from the deal if a number of Ben-Gals opt out of the agreement, which could open the team up to more litigation. If the Bengals opted out, the suit would go forward. A fairness hearing is scheduled for December 3 in front of U.S. District Court Judge Michael Barrett, who will rule on the attorney fees that the Bengals will pay to Brenneman's lawyers. Brenneman filed suit in early 2014, alleging that she was effectively paid just $2.85 per hour - a violation of federal minimum wage laws - during her more than 300 hours working for the Cincinnati Bengals from May 2013 to January 2014. Brenneman alleged that though the cheerleaders were paid $90 per home game during her stint, their compensation was well below Ohio's minimum wage of $7.85 when factoring in mandatory practices and 10 'charity' appearances.
