Problem with work, pay or contracts?

If you have an issue at work, please contact the official in your area (listed below). When first getting in touch with us please:

  • Tell us what type of work you do
  • Send us a copy of your contract if you have one
  • Include a summary of your issue

You can talk to us about issues including bullying and harassment, discrimination, issues with employers and potential employers, the casting process, health and safety and pay and contracts.

Every conversation you have with Equity is confidential - whether it's asking for advice and support or reporting bad practice. We'll only take forward your case if you choose to and you don't need to be working on an Equity contract to get help.

The official for your region can help you with problems related to work, pay and contracts.
