If you are considering a business venture that involves the disclosure of confidential information, you should ensure that you understand the pros and cons of a Mutual Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA). A non-disclosure agreement should include which state laws govern the agreement, how disputes can be resolved (court or arbitration), and who pays attorneys` fees (the loser or each party pays their own). This is especially important if you are dealing with someone who has much deeper pockets than you to avoid being prevented from exercising your legal rights due to overwhelming legal fees. The main advantage of NDAs is the protection of your proprietary information. Any private information that you believe is valuable to your business should be covered by confidentiality provisions. The purpose of entering into an NDA must be mentioned in the agreement, as the intention of the parties entering into an NDA must be clear so that there are no misinterpretations when reading the NDA about the intention of the parties. A confidentiality agreement consists of various clauses and it is up to the parties to add clauses based on their understanding and how they intend to secure their confidential information. When creating an NDA, it should always be borne in mind that the agreement must be clear in terms, neat and short with proper labeling that would catch the eyes of readers. The language used in creating an NDA must be easy to understand and yet foolproof so that there are no other interpretations or misinterpretations of the terms.
From Broadway to dinner theater, Equity has a contract to cover professional theater, big and small, wherever it could take place in the United States. Equity negotiates and manages national and regional collective agreements with multiple employers, as well as employer agreements with theatre employers. These agreements provide for minimum wages, benefits, job security and many other provisions to ensure safe working conditions and a working environment in which actors and persons inspected are protected. So here is our written agreement. It is put online so that you can view it and hopefully download and use it. Read it carefully. If you are an artist, you make certain commitments. The same applies if you are a producer or a theatre group. But what about directors and designers? What would a framework agreement look like for the creative team and how can we work together to raise the standards for directors and designers on the margins? RSVP: Please confirm your participation by email: firstname.lastname@example.org members or their representatives and lawyers may negotiate individual terms and conditions as long as these terms do not fall within the minimum requirements of the applicable Equity collective agreement. Equity contracts for individual members typically include jobs in three categories: principal, choir, and stage manager.
The main contract is used for all the main actors and most of the stage managers. The choir contract is used for actors who mainly do choral work. Each individual employment contract is linked to a specific collective agreement and contains all its conditions.
