Screen Actors Guild today voiced its support for actions by the office of the Los Angeles City Attorney and the State labor commissioner, which are cracking down on unlawful fees charged by background casting businesses.
In all, cease-and-desist letters were sent to 14 background casting companies on Wednesday, warning that requiring actors to pay a fee for access to work is a violation of California labor law. L.A. City Attorney Carmen Trutanich sent the letters to background casting companies operating in the city, with the goal of achieving industry-wide compliance.
