Welcome to the International Entertainment Adult Union.
We are the only Department of Labor approved Parent Union
representing the Adult Industry in the United States.
SBA OPENS UP FOR ADULT WORKERS
Independent contractors and self-employed individuals are normally not eligible for unemployment compensation. However, under the CARES Act, such individuals can receive benefits under a special Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) program if they qualify.
1. How much does the program pay and for how long?
PUA pays the same weekly benefits as your regular state unemployment insurance (UI) program, but the benefits are 100% federally funded. PUA benefits are available for up to 39 weeks.
This program expires on December 31, 2020. Through July 31, 2020, recipients of unemployment compensation will receive an additional $600 per week on top of the state-calculated benefit.
2. Am I eligible?
According to the Department of Labor: “An individual who works as an independent contractor with reportable income also may qualify for PUA benefits if he or she is unemployed, partially employed, or unable or unavailable to work because the COVID-19 public health emergency has severely limited his or her ability to continue performing his or her customary work activities, and has thereby forced the individual to suspend such activities” is eligible.
NOTE: Receipt of a PPP loan may impact your ability to collect unemployment insurance.
3. How do I apply?
You can apply through your state unemployment office.
At this moment, the International Entertainment Adult Union would like to announce the Termination of our Adult Performers Actors Guild, APAG. The IEAU has official filed and terminated APAG with the DOL, as well as filed law suit under the supreme court against Alana Evans, Ruby and Kelly Pierce, APAGS former President, VP & Secretary to recover all of APAGs assets. Assets totaling over $210,000.
The board of the IEAU can no longer tolerate Under any circumstances, the constant on line hatefulness and the bulling, that is not what we are about or who we are, that is not the professionalism we want to portray; therefore, the board has decided to pull back and regroup.
The Adult Performers Actors Guild is a Trademark entity of The International Entertainment Adult Union therefore, the name will stay with the IEAU, all APAG members at this time will be under the main IEAU membership. Once all that has been done officially, we have retrieved back all assets from APAG officers, we will then regroup and figure out together, how to move forward.
Phyllisha Anne, the founder states “I put this Union together for the soul purpose to help people, and create a save place for workers to be able to come to for guidance and help, there has been so much slanderous talk and bullying, that helps no one and it takes the focus away of what is important. Right now, we need to pull together as an industry and a Union is an entity that can help everyone in this time of need. I was hoping they would all see the good in what they were able to do, but that doesn’t seem to be possible, even though it saddens me, it’s time to say good bye.”
Elisabeth Thomas, International President states, “We thank all the current officers very much for all the work they have put into this union, however, we wished you would of lead us with a more professional stance than is currently being projected as the Union, and we look forward to establishing the APAG chapter at a later date, once we have had time to step back and regroup.
At this current time, APAG is no longer registered with the Department of Labor under the IEAU.
As of March 19th 2020 APAG is now officially terminated, until further notice.

The International Entertainment Adult Union (IEAU)
is a federally recognized labor union representing those in the adult entertainment industries where one must be over 18 to participate.
While Ms. Daniels is paid to represent strip club owners, we are an entirely volunteer-run union that represents dancers.
The International Entertainment Adult Union unequivocally supports the Dynamex decision, as ruled by the California Supreme Court, which made clear the difference between an independent contractor and an employee.
We also support AB5 (California Assembly Bill) and related measures to codify this decision further into law. We go even further and hope that the rest of the country will follow California's pro-worker, pro-union lead.
