Weekly Rest Period All performers are entitled to one weekly rest period of 58 hours. However, where there is night shooting consisting primarily of exterior photography and the performer's call is not earlier than 3 pm and performer is dismissed in the studio before midnight Friday, the 58-hour rest period may be reduced to 56 hours. On a 6-day location week, the weekly rest period is 36 hours. Violation of either the daily or weekly rest period is known as a "forced call", and the damage payment is one day's pay or $835.50 ($869.00 effective 11-1-03), whichever is the lesser sum.

25. Contracts Standard employment contracts should be available for signature no later than the first day of employment. Failure to deliver contracts within the appropriate time period will cause damages to be incurred by the producer to the same extent as those for late payment. 26. Looping A. Day Performer and 3-Day Performer Performers shall be paid one full day's pay for up to 8 hours of looping each day. B. Weekly Performer If performer is recalled for four hours or less to loop (record soundtrack) after completion of principal photography, payment shall be an additional one-half day's pay. If more than four hours is required, a full day's pay shall be payable.

27. Reuse In Another Field Or Medium Producer agrees that no part of the photography or soundtrack of a performer made for a program shall be used in a new program created for another field or medium, e.g., Theatrical Motion Pictures, Commercials, Radio and/or Television Programs. Separate bargaining with the performer is required prior to such reuse and the performer may not be required to consent at the time of the original employment. Integration and/or Customization for use in the Industrial/ Educational field is permitted for an additional fee (Section 3F). If the Producer reuses the soundtrack and/or photography without so bargaining, the performer is entitled to three times the amount originally paid for the number of days worked covered by the material used.

28. Hold Harmless Performers, Stunt Performers and Stunt Coordinators shall be held harmless from any claim for damages for injury or property damage arising out of acts in the course of employment. Producers must provide coverage for personal injury ($1 million/$2 million) and property damage ($250,000). 29. Production Staff Members of the Producer's casting or production staff may not be employed as performers in any picture for which they render services on Producer's production staff, without consent of the Guild. There are certain exceptions to this rule (actor/directors, actor/producers, animal handlers in close work with their animals, certain emergency situations) - when in doubt, contact the Guild. 30. Union Security Every Performer employed by any Producer shall either be a member of the Guild in good standing or the Producer shall report in writing the Performer's name, social security number and first date of employment within fifteen (15) business days of the initial employment. As defined and applied in this section, the term “member of the Union in good standing” means a person who tenders union initiation fees and dues as financial obligations in accordance with the requirements of the National Labor Relations Act. Employment of a member not in good standing will subject the Producer to liquidated damages in the amount of $500.00. Employment of performers after the 30-day Taft-Hartley waiver period has expired will also subject the Producer to liquidated damages.
