Arts Law support the introduction of a mandatory Code for performer representatives. ALCA is pleased to provide its submission on the draft Code to the NSW Industrial Relations Office and commends the State Government’s ongoing commitment to engage with the arts community in this consultation.
We support the Government’s objective of amending the legislation and implementing an industry code of conduct in order to provide greater protection for artists. However, in order for legislative changes to achieve any form of practical success it is imperative that artists within the industry are educated about their rights and responsibilities, and that there is effective enforcement of the Act and any Code of Conduct.
