The Stage / News / Equity encourages performers to take action against unpaid work.

Equity is calling on its members to consider legal action against organisations that try to bypass the law.

Equity spokesman Martin Brown said: “Equity continues to challenge any employer who appears to be flouting National Minimum Wage legislation. We would welcome a member stepping forward and taking a legal case, which Equity would back, so that we can demonstrate to the entertainment industry that it is subject to National Minimum Wage law just like everybody else.”

Brown said that any member who believes they have a case should approach the union, which will then “assess the chance of success and support the member throughout the process”
