This class action is against the Cineflix group of companies, which together produce factual television programming in Ontario (and elsewhere). The claim alleges that individuals working for Cineflix who work through their own corporations and/or who are called "independent contractors", and those individuals working for Cineflix as employees, have been denied basic minimum standards under Ontario's Employment Standards Act, 2000, in the areas of minimum wage, overtime pay, vacation pay and holiday pay. The class action seeks payment for these items as well as related damages.
The class of people covered by the class action are those who worked in production, pre-production and post-production classifications and who worked or are still working at Cineflix.
