Entertainment agreements can be very different than a usual employment agreement because of industry standards and customs. For example, some parts of the contract may be non-negotiable simply because the current industry standard has been set at a particular bar. In addition, there are usually unions and talent representatives that become involved in entertainment agreements and depending on the industry, there may be the need to go through administrative proceedings prior to filing a case in court.
Usually, entertainment/talent agreements are for specified time periods and compensation in such an agreement can depend on factors such as past performance, industry standards, and the demand for the talent. Since these contracts can be very different from a regular contract, it is important to consult with a lawyer from L & D Law who is familiar with such agreements and experienced in handling such matters.
