Talent Agency Licenses

Talent agencies are often defined as any person or entity in the business of obtaining or attempting to obtain employment for artists. Talent agency regulation is generally concerned with the agreements between agent and client. Talent agency license applications may require detailed fee schedules and an example of written contracts with clients. License fees range from $100 - $500, and may depend on the number of agents the agency employs. A surety bond is often required and licenses must be renewed either annually or biennially.
Ramifications of Non-Compliance
Acting as a talent agent or talent agency without the proper license can lead to fines and censure. A state governing authority, such as a labor commissioner, may even partially or entirely void any contracts held between agent and client due to agency non-compliance.
