Collective agreements are signed between employers' organisations and employees' unions in a sector of activity. They supplement and improve the provisions of the Labour Code by introducing more favourable provisions or not provided for in them, such as minimum wages, a pension scheme, etc.
To find out which national collective agreement the company depends on:
1. Determine the main activity in terms of turnover (NAF EPA codes);
2. Refer to the'interbranch agreement to define the sector to which the company belongs;
3. Verify in the first articles of the National Collective Agreement that you are entering the National Collective Agreement field.
The live performance is covered by 3 collective agreements:
Public sector :
National Collective Agreement for Arts and Cultural Enterprises
1/ National Collective Agreement for Private Performing Arts Companies
2/ Collective agreement of the technical enterprises serving the creation and the event
Since 18 May 2011, Article 8 of the Law on simplification and improvement of the quality of the law stipulates that employers under the GUSO (cf. below) must "when they employ an artist or a performance technician, make them benefit from the provisions of a collective agreement of the activities of the show and refer to them in the form of declaration of employment".
THE TRAINING "Safety of venues"
Mandatory internship to obtain or renew the Entertainment Contractor Licence.
This course, which will be the subject of a knowledge check, allows only the operators of places to justify the training necessary to obtain or renew the licence of the entrepreneur of first category shows (licence1). It also concerns all persons wishing to acquire knowledge in the field of risk prevention in the spectacle.
ADMINISTRATIVE PROCEDURES: GUSO CAN HELP!
The Guso is an administrative simplification service enabling all legal obligations to be fulfilled at once by social protection organisations (AFDAS, UNEDIC, AUDIENS, Congés Spectacles, CMB, URSSAF)
BUT ATTENTION this service is not for all show entrepreneurs!!!
The organisers of shows are concerned (without limitation of the number of performances organised):
- which do not have the show as their main activity,
- who employ artists or technicians in the performing arts on a fixed-term contract.
The National Fund for Permanent Employment in Entertainment (FONPEPS) is the first fund created to support sustainable employment in the show.
