Let's Make THIS Happen! FILM MIA's approach to production amid COVID-19

WHAT IS CHANGING IN THE HIRING PROCESS

As we prepare (and look forward to) a time where we create practical approaches to production in the near future, we must be prepared for new realities. While we are sure that our team members are being responsible and taking the safety measures to protect themselves and others, for your own peace of mind and ours, EVERY person hired, contracted or invited to a set will be asked to follow specific procedures that were not common a few months back.

Film MIA LLC has created this informative micro-site to inform all workers, vendors, and contractors of the "New Procedures" we are going to ask for the production of new projects.

FOR EMPLOYED WORKERS AND DAY HIRES

"An employer may screen job applicants for symptoms of COVID-19 after making a conditional job offer, as long as it does so for all entering employees in the same type of job. This ADA rule applies whether or not the applicant has a disability.”

WAIVERS / HOLD HARMLESS

  • At the moment of release of this micro-site FILM MIA LLC will not be creating any Hold Harmless as they fall into a grey area of legality as of now.
  • FILM MIA LLC will be sending an Acknowledgment of Risk Letter, based on the premise that the workers should know production cannot control what visitors and employees have as exposure before their arrival to set

FOR VENDORS AND CONTRACTORS

  • FILM MIA LLC will adhere to the State, County and City regulations for the professional performances of business, this means that every vendor or contractor providing a service that requires a DBPR License must have a recently renewed Occupational License. This includes Catering Services, Estheticians or Beauticians, Hair Dressers, Medics, and Occupational Health and Safety consultants.
  • Contractors loaning out employees to Film MIA LLC must supply the company with a Certificate of Worksman Compensation, or an exception of Works-Comp issued by the State of Florida. This exemption can be acquired here.
  • Equipment vendors and rental companies will be asked to supply production with information about their handling of equipment prior to contracted dates. They must provide production with guidelines on how to disinfect equipment and instruments to avoid damages safely.
  • Motorhomes, portable restrooms, and mobile offices must be adequately disinfected with an EPA registered Human Coronavirus disinfectant, and arrive to set sealed.
