Talent contracts can be very different from regular employment and partnership contracts. Some talent contracts may be part of union contracts and take into account the scope of the industry as well as the current market. The difference is also that contract disputes and even discrimination cases may require the participation of a union representative, and talent may be used to resolve the dispute by working through union proceedings.
Entertainment and talent contracts sometimes do not include full-time talent engagements because they are usually fixed-term and limited, and the compensation regime differs from that of employees and partners. Anyone considering entering into an entertainment and talent contract should seek the advice of a Sethimaz attorney familiar with the special and unusual nature of such contracts.
Important parts of entertainment and talent contracts are non-competes and covenants. At the Law Offices of Sethi and Mazaheri, we have the expertise to negotiate these contracts to ensure that an executive or talent can continue their career after leaving a particular employer.
