Our attorneys have helped countless victims working in all fields and levels in the industry, including for claims arising out of harassment, discrimination, wage and hour violations, and wrongful termination. If you need a Los Angeles wrongful termination lawyer, you may contact the Azadian Law Group, PC to evaluate your potential case.

The entertainment industry is a complex business

Most people never understand how complex the entertainment industry is. Do you know how many people it takes to make a movie or show come to life? It is so much more than just the actors and directors.

  • The average movie credits over 500 people, with some movies crediting several thousand people.
  • Overall, the US film and television industry supports over 2 million jobs.

There is no single employer when it comes to this business. In fact, most of the people who work in this business work through small companies that employ fewer than ten people.

Discrimination and retaliation are illegal

Just like any other industry, discrimination and retaliation are prevalent in this business. Hollywood was also the birthplace of the “Me Too” movement, which has put the spotlight on many industry problems with sexual assault and harassment.

Although most entertainment jobs are “at will,” that does not mean you can be terminated when the reason involves:

  • Discrimination based on a person’s race, nationality, gender, pregnancy status, disability, sexuality, religion, or age.
  • Retaliation against an employee for reporting instances of discrimination, harassment, unsafe working conditions, illegal activity, and more.

Do the same laws apply to entertainment industry workers?

Yes, entertainment industry workers are protected at both the federal and state levels. You are protected against harassment, discrimination, wrongful termination, and retaliation by your employers.

How will an attorney help my case?

These cases can become complex. In most instances, an employer will not make it obvious they fired you for an illegal reason. Rather, they will come up with some alternate reason like “poor job performance” or “unprofessional behavior.” Your attorney will help you get to the bottom of what happened and find the evidence you need for a successful case.
