“DON’T QUOTE ME": RECENT DEVELOPMENT IN ‘NO SALARY HISTORY’ LAW
Since the demise of the long-term talent employment contract in Hollywood studios, production companies and talent representatives have rooted deal-making in the talent’s recent comparable “quotes,” i.e. compensation history. A new section of the California Labor Code took effect on Jan. 1, 2018, which, among other things prohibits relying upon or seeking salary history information in determining whether to hire and what to offer employees. Several other jurisdictions, including New York, have similar new statutes. How are these laws, intended to reduce gender and other pay disparities, impacting the business? In this panel discussion, labor & employment law experts who have worked with talent and employer groups to address these developments and a seasoned business affairs executive will explain the new statute and explore how it is changing the fundamentals of deal-making in Hollywood, from both the studio and talent perspective.
