Work Safe Twerk Safe v HMQRO


WORK SAFE TWERK SAFE –

UPDATE ON JUDICIAL REVIEW


Ontario: Naomi Sayers and her co-counsel, Christopher Folz, represent the above group, Work Safe Twerk Safe in an appeal filed in October 2020 to challenge Doug Ford’s decision to target strippers, discriminatorily and unfairly, in regulations to close down strip clubs.


Earlier today, the Divisional Court provided our office with its decision on our client’s motion for anonymization. Our clients were successful, and together, the parties are working together to move the matter forward. Our clients welcome this news and appreciates all support.


About Work Safe Twerk Safe:


Our client is a peer-to-peer group that is based out of Toronto, Ontario (Canada), made up of current and former strippers who came together to fight for strippers’ safety, dignity and rights on the basis that exotic dancing is real work. Our client’s mandate, among other things, is to resist against unsafe work practices implemented by owners and the failure of policy and law makers to ensure policies, practices and procedures centre the health and safety of strippers.
