The Stage / News / Unpaid extra wins fight for minimum wage


An extra who successfully secured minimum wage from four film production companies that had hired him on a no-fee basis is urging other performers to “stand up” to organisations that try to avoid paying them.

Despite signing agreements with each of the companies saying the work he was doing would not be paid, Nick Thomas-Webster successfully secured payment from three of the employers simply by invoicing them after the shoots. He won £500.10 from the fourth after he made a claim to an employment tribunal.
