TALENT PROTECTIONS ACT PASSED IN CALIFORNIA

California Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill by Assembly member Marc Levine to combat sexual harassment and eating disorders in the entertainment industry.

The measure requires talent agencies to create educational materials on sexual harassment prevention, retaliation, nutrition and eating disorders, and make them available to its adult artists.

For minors entering the entertainment industry, the bill requires that they and their parents or legal guardian receive training in these areas.

“This watershed moment is the result of a collaboration with talent agencies who are taking seriously the harassment that we’ve all known preys upon their artists,” said Levine.

The law, which takes effect January 2019, also mandates that nutrition information be provided to fashion models, whose health can be compromised in the pursuit of extreme thinness.

“Young girls and boys are affected by the images they see, and this will help ensure that the images they see are of healthy people,” Levine added.
