Philadelphia Film Crew Sues Over Unpaid Wages

October 29th, 2018

Philadelphia Wage and Hour Lawyers advocate for fair wages and payment.Philadelphia has been a popular place to make movies. The Greater Philadelphia Film Office, first established in 1985, is very welcoming and supportive of filmmakers. Philadelphia’s diverse architecture, landscape, and historic significance are all quite appealing as well. Scenes from many noteworthy films have been shot in the city, but, recently, a Philadelphia filmmaker has gotten a bad review after a crew that shot a film here sued its producer, claiming they were not paid for about two weeks of work.

The Pennsylvania-based production company and the film’s producer worked throughout this past summer, employing 53 crew members. Those crew members claim they were not paid for about 120 hours of work, for a collective total of about $200,000. Through email messages, the producer promised to pay the crew members if he was able to sell the mob-themed movie, which stars recognizable names from a well-known HBO series.

There are strict regulations for wage payment in Pennsylvania, including frequency of wage payments, manner of wage payments, direct deposit, payment after separation of employment, and more. The rules and regulations can be complicated and having a knowledgeable wage and hour lawyer to help guide you through the process of recovering the wages in dispute can make the process much easier.

If you have been treated unjustly at work, no matter what industry you work in, please call the Philadelphia wage and hour lawyers at Sidney L. Gold & Associates, P.C.
