(WEBINAR) No Lights, No Camera, No Game: Force Majeure & Its Impact

No Lights, No Camera, No Game:
Force Majeure Events & the Impact on Future Entertainment and Sports Negotiations

Monday, May 18, 2020 (Date Correction)
1:00 pm to 2:30 pm Eastern – 90 minutes

The entertainment and sports industries are all sitting idle as the COVID-19 pandemic has forced individuals in those industries to work from home. The collaborative arts and sports extend far beyond the stars and celebrities and most of these industries have members who belong to guilds and unions who negotiate the collective bargaining agreements which typically set the minimum terms which employers must provide within the industry. Yet force majeure provisions are not consistent from industry to industry and some union and guild contracts don’t address such provisions at all.

This program will explore how different unions and guilds treat force majeure events and the impact the crisis will have on future collective bargaining agreements and the rights of their members in future coronavirus crises.

This webinar is free to members of the Forum on the Entertainment and Sports Industries, the American Bar Association and law school students.
