This policy brief is based on research by the Exotic Dancers Health and Safety Work Group published in Exotic Dancing: Health and Safety.   They look exotic dancers in the province of Ontario most of whom work freelance. As free-lancers they can choose when, where and how often they work, but they have no access to the protections available to employees through much of the federal and provincial labour legislation or through unions. Acts and sections of acts which use the terminology employer-employee do not apply to free-lance workers.
