I'm hoping I posted this in the correct place but forgive me, its my first on this forum. I did a promo gig for a high end automobile agency the first weekend of July and have not gotten paid. I have done tons of promo's and have usually gotten paid within a week of the event ending. I have contacted the agency one time at the begining of August and another girl who did the same gig called today and they told her to call back next week. I have worked for the automibile company since and the event manager told me he made sure the checks were sent out right after the event (he gave forth the info, I'd never ask the client) How much time allowance do we give them?

do you have a contract for the gig and if so when did it say you should receive payment? I know 4-6 weeks is pretty common for promo work. You really need to get a hold of your agency. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

wish you the best,

30-45 days for payment is spelled out in most contracts. Read your agency agreement and see what it says. Any agency that passes the 45 day limit is having some kind of problem-usually financial or client problems...which suck because it's really hard to get your money when that happens. I have learned to be pushy when it comes to these things. Don't be afraid to sue. If they are doing it to you, then they are probably doing it to aloooot of people. You might be able to get a class action suit going if there are enough people involved. Although, when you threaten lawsuit, and they know that they owe you money within a certain timeframe, they will usually pay. Tell other models also so they can be warned.

30 days or so, depending on how patient you are. are they returning your phone calls and/or inquiries? if not, somebody's getting cute with your money and probly other people's monies.

They are answering the phones but keep transferring me to different people and were super pushy about ee working for them before I had gotten paid for the first one. The otehr model and I are taking turns one a week now calling them "just to see how its going" I had such a blast working for the client that I don't wanna cause a big deal about it, thanks for the replies everyone!
