Please be advised that the Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Businesses Regulations 2003 (which are referred to hereinafter as the Regulations) came into force on 6th April 2004. Under those Regulations, we are required to present you with our Terms of Business and to seek certain information from you (the Hirer) and to establish your exact identity.
Terms and Conditions of Business with Hirers
Live Arts Entertainment Ltd acts primarily as an Employment Agency and this notice is to confirm that we work in compliance with the Regulations. As an Employment Agency, our position is that we act as Agents for the Artist/s (who pay us for those services) and, whilst bookings are arranged by us with you, the agreements then coming into force are between you, the Hirer, and the Artist/s.
If we need to act as an Employment Business at any time in arranging Artists for you, then we will tell you so at the time of making the booking and will document that fact in confirmations or contracts issued for such engagement(s). Under those circumstances, your contract is direct with Live Arts Entertainment Ltd to supply the Artist/s.
We are obliged to make reasonable enquiries with you as to any Health & Safety risks or other legal requirements applying to you/the venue before supplying a work-seeker (Artist/s). Equally, we will advise you of any special requirements of any of the Artist/s we supply and, if applicable, of any risks involved in the presentation of the Artist/s act/performance.
We confirm that we have/will have obtained authorisation from the Artist/s to act as their Agent for the purpose of seeking, negotiating and securing engagements, as appropriate to their specific talents, within the entertainment industry.
We confirm to you that we have/will have made all reasonable enquiries with the Artist/s regarding their suitability and that we have obtained all relevant and necessary information required, as defined in the Regulations. If, after having arranged (an) Artist/s for you, we are made aware that any such Artist/s is/are or may be unsuitable for the engagement in question, we are obliged to bring this to your attention and possibly to terminate the engagement.
It may often be the case that, in seeking always to supply the best entertainment for you, we will sub-contract the services of (a) suitable Artist/s from other Employment Agencies or Employment Businesses. When and if we do so, we will ensure that our Terms of Business with such other Employment Agency or Employment Business are in place before making the booking and that they, in turn, have all required permissions and information necessary from the Artist/s. We will also document the involvement of such other Employment Agency or Employment Business in contracts/confirmations issued.
All Artistes are advised to carry Public Liability Insurance (PLI) and, where applicable, to have their equipment P.A.T. (Electrical Safety) certified. You should please stipulate whether Artist/s PLI is a necessity for any engagement. We would also similarly expect you (or the venue) to carry appropriate PLI cover & to ensure that all electricity supply points are regularly checked and are safe for use by the Artist/s. If you are hiring a venue, then you should seek such assurances from the venue management.
If payment is being made to us Live Arts Entertainment Ltd for Artist/s fees where we act as Entertainment Agents, then cheques in settlement of such monies should be made payable to “Live Arts Entertainment Ltd 'Client' Account”.
Where we act as an Employment Business, all cheques in settlement of invoices should be made payable to “Live Arts Entertainment Ltd 'General' A/C”.
Our invoice issued for monies due will clearly state the account to which payment should be made.
If it is agreed that you will be paying the Artist/s direct on the day of the performance (or as agreed where multiple performances are booked), the person to whom payment should be made will be named on the documentation. The real name of the Artist/s will, in any case, appear on confirmations/contracts.
If there is anything above that you do not fully understand, feel unable to comply with, or are unhappy about for any reason, please contact us by telephone or email for further clarification.
