Five former cheerleaders of the Buffalo Bills have brought a lawsuit against the NFL team, citing excessive unpaid hours and sexual harassment allegations.

The cheerleaders who are only referred to by their first names, due to the nature of the lawsuit, have alleged that they worked hundreds of hours for no pay at games and public appearances.

The system of the pay that the club apparently employs does not pay the cheerleaders for these events and the cheerleaders believe that this is contradictory to what they signed up for.

They have also alleged that there has been physical and mental sexual harassment as well as physical tests to see how firm their bodies were.

The club itself is unable to comment due to their policy of not discussing pending litigation. But it is the third case brought against an NFL team this year over cheerleaders pay structure.

Both the Oakland Raiders and the Cincinnati Bengals also have pending cases being brought against them over pay.
