Cartel against freelancers

November 7, 2023

Does your company hire freelancers and share their rate information with industry peers? Make sure to double-check that you are not participating in an unlawful cartel-like behavior. For example, an UK regulator is investigating scripted drama producers for sharing information to fix freelancer pay rates. If found guilty, the companies may be subject to fines of up to 10% of their turnover, according to The Freelance Informer.
