Former Buffalo Bills cheerleaders suing team for compensation, being made to do ‘jiggle tests’


Yet another former group of NFL cheerleaders are filing a lawsuit against their employer, and this time it’s five former Buffalo Bills cheerleaders who are suing the organization for unfair compensation, as well as being made to do what was called “jiggle tests,” according to a report from the Washington Post.

The Bills cheerleaders, known as the Jills, allege that they were inadequately compensated and were subjected to demeaning treatment that included “jiggle tests.” The lawsuit, filed against Stejon Productions Corp., which manages the Jills; Citadel Communications, the Jills’ former manager; and the Bills in State Supreme Court in Buffalo, alleges that the women were not paid the minimum wage and were mistreated at, among other times, their annual golf tournament. They claim they were required to wear bikinis and enter a dunk tank, as well as being auctioned off like prizes.

As far as the compensation goes, this group of former Bills cheerleaders join a group formerly employed by the Bengals and Raiders who have already filed suit over compensation issues, which has become a growing concern over the years.
