Employment Rights Attorneys Tatiana Hernandez, Craig Ackermann and Aashish Y. Desai will discuss the basics of EEOC, Covid-19 adjacent rights, discrimination & wrongful termination, and improper classifications as independent contractors, and what to do if your rights are violated. The majority of this session will be an interactive Q&A with the audience. The first step to empowerment in the workplace is to KNOW YOUR RIGHTS!
As Hollywood has made strides to increase diversity initiatives, entry-level workers are still subjected to low wages, long hours, lack of benefits and worker protections. Movements within the industry such as #PayUpHollywood and #MeToo have raised awareness but have largely eluded the music supervision community. These demanding conditions are connected to the historical exclusion of marginalized groups such as BIPOC, disabled and low income workers. Now, new CA labor laws have been passed, but are employers abiding by these rules and regulations?
This session is a member benefit and open to current Members of GMS and Friends of the Guild (FOG) only.
