A number of studios have contracted with a company known as Yurcor to act as the Employer of Record for its artists. These artists are employees of the studios not independent contractors. This is because they are subject to supervision at the studios where they work. However, Yurcor has been treating these employees as independent contractors and deducting employer payroll taxes from their paychecks. The Animation Guild (TAG) wants to help you recover these improperly withheld wages.
TAG is gathering information to learn more about Yurcor’s actions as Employer of Record in the Visual Effects Industry. If you’ve worked at a studio where you were paid by Yurcor as Employer of Record, please fill out the form below and submit it to us. We will then contact you to discuss how TAG can help.
