Employment contracts are becoming a more common request in both short and long term production jobs. In addition to setting forth the basic terms of an agreement, employers are looking to protect themselves in a number of areas with indemnification, confidentiality and termination clauses. What does this mean to you? Under what circumstances should you sign a contract?

Thomas Crowell, author of The Pocket Lawyer for Filmmakers and a founding partner of Saperstein & Crowell, LLP, a New York City law firm, will help you arm yourself with the practical advice of a TV-producer-turned-entertainment-lawyer. The evening will cover standard clauses of most employment contracts, employment law and a Q&A.

This is an exclusive opportunity for PGA members to:
• Get important legal and employment information
• Prevent exposure to liability
• Get leverage in contract negotiations
