How do I terminate my agency contract?

There are three ways to terminate an Exclusive Management contract. All termination notices must be in writing with a copy to Equity.

If you go 90 days without a bona fide offer of employment, then you have the right to terminate the contract. You may not terminate if you are currently employed.

An agent and an actor may at any time agree to terminate the Exclusive Management contract. Often an agent will offer a list of projects for which the actor is responsible to pay commission. These projects are submissions that the agent has already made to a casting director or producer. Equity will usually accept the mutual release, but in no case can the mutual release agreement extend the term of the agency contract.

There are some conditions that allow you to leave with your sub-agent.
