8.1 Overview

The Engagee will make every reasonable effort to schedule regular medical, dental or therapy appointments outside of the regular rehearsal schedule.


8.2 Injury

If the Engagee will be absent from a scheduled rehearsal or performance due to injury as a result of an accident and, in the opinion of a health care professional, the Engagee requires a recovery period before resuming regular rehearsal and performance activity, the Engager has the right to terminate the agreement without compensation if this period exceeds 7% of the total engagement period.


8.3 Illness

1. If the Engagee will be absent from a scheduled rehearsal or performance due to an illness and, in the opinion of a health care professional, will require a recovery period before resuming regular rehearsal and performance activity, the Engagee may request paid sick leave of 7% of the total engagement period.
Example: If the engagement period requires 50 rehearsals in total, the Engagee may request a paid sick leave of 3.5 rehearsals.

2. The Engager will compensate the Engagee with a value equal to the Engagee’s average daily income over the entire engagement period multiplied by the sick leave period which will be calculated in rehearsal units, i.e. if the Engagee’s total income over the entire engagement period is $1,800 and 50 rehearsals are required over this period, the Engagee’s daily average income is $36. The Engager will compensate the Engagee with $126 which equals 3.5 rehearsals x $36 daily average income.

3. The Engager has the right to terminate the Agreement if the sick leave period exceeds 7% of the total engagement period.
