Labour & Employment Law for Artists | Thurs. Nov 12/15

Thursday, November 12, 2015, 6-7:30pm
Firestone Gallery, Ottawa Art Gallery
2 Daly Avenue, ArtsCourt
Legal obligations related to working relationships can be crucial to defining an artist’s rights and obligations. Join our panel of experts and artists for a discussion on how labour and employment law may affect your practice!

For example, how important is the distinction between an employee, contractor, or self-employed person? What are some common issues artists encounter when drafting or breaking employment contracts? What are the legal ramifications of blending your art practice with your day job? What should I know about being represented by an agent?

Michael Fisher, Raven Law
Catherine Mensour, the Mensour Agency
Sonia Ndongmo, Vocalist
