work hours report
« on: Aug 17, 2009, 09:35 pm »
I haven't had to do this before.  My current theatre is telling me that they have to send in a report to AEA on each actor's work hours per week, so I have to tally up the hours and e-mail the totals to the admin asst each week.  Where did this need come from? When did AEA start asking for this, and why is it my job to figure it out?  Shouldn't the theatre track it from the Daily Calls that I send out every day?

It's not really a problem for me to do, I just am resistant to taking on any busywork, and it seems to me that unless we go into overtime, the time I take to do that is time that I could be doing something more useful.

That's usually a function of the deputy; there are forms in the deputy packet for this exact purpose. Do you not have a deputy?

Um, hours worked may differ from the hours called. 

I would call AEA and see what they are tracking it.

Sure, but again, why bother?  Especially if nobody is getting OT?

We have a deputy, but they only have to send in their reports in the event of a grievance or of OT. And the theatre says they have to report to AEA.  I'm wondering if something got lost in translation and it's their payroll service that needs this, not AEA.

My suggestion?
Call your Business Rep.
Get the real story from them and then decide what's next...

I agree about calling AEA, but out of curiosity, what type of AEA contract are you working under on this show?
