Late Pay Is Everyone’s Concern

HOW AGENTS CAN HELP PREVENT LATE PAY

The WGAW and its franchised agents are working together to address the chronic problem of late payment. The joint project will focus on delivery of literary material by screenwriters. With agents providing the Guild with timely information regarding when their clients deliver literary material for features, the Guild can more systematically track script deliveries and payments in the ongoing effort to ensure writers are paid on time. Full and consistent participation by WGAW franchised agents is essential to the project’s success..
