Production line: A new confidential employment advice helpline has been launched for workers in the UK film and television industries.
The Workline service will be run by staff with HR experience gained within those industries, and co-ordinated by employment law firm Goodman Derrick. Advice will cover the full gamut of work-related queries, including contract issues, maternity and paternity leave and pay, flexible working hours, disciplinary and dismissal procedures, and pensions.
Stewart Till, deputy chairman of sector skills council Skillset, said: “With an industry as rapidly changing as ours, a service such as this is as vital to employers as it is to employees and freelancers.”
The telephone number is 0870 850 7147 – full details at the website
