KMR Talent Agency Unpaid Wages SAG-AFTRA Class Action Lawsuit Lawyers


KMR Talent Agency Unpaid Wages SAG-AFTRA Class Action Lawsuit Lawyers

Recently, the KMR Talent Agency has been under fire due to non-payment to clients. According to President Mark Measures, the talent agency was going through a “talent payment breakdown” due to logistical and staffing issues – specifically banking issues, the crash of their payment database, and the loss of the head of the Talent Payment department – that ultimately resulted in issues with paying their clients.

Just a few days after Measures’ statement regarding KMR’s issues, Measures left the Association of Talent Agents (ATA). A few days after leaving the ATA, Measures sent a letter to SAG-AFTRA informing them of the decision to suspend their franchise with the union. In his letter, Measures stated the following:

“It is in the best interest of KMR and its clients to temporarily inactivate [the] franchise with the union…the decision is not taken lightly, but it presents…the opportunity to address and rectify the issues that have been causing significant distractions in recent times…I want to assure…that I am fully committed to taking all necessary steps to correct these issues…We will be restructuring the agency to ensure a stronger launch when we ask to reactivate our franchise with SAG/Afra.”

Of course, this decision has left many KMR agents blindsided. Many agents have publicly left the talent agency, either to start their own talent agencies or join other agencies.

Unfortunately, countless clients have been left in the dark and unsure of when they will be paid the wages they are owed. Many clients have resorted to online forums to share their experiences with the talent agency, some sharing that the agency owes them tens of thousands of dollars. Clients have shared experiences of bounced checks and a lack of answers from the agency. The talent agency is estimated to owe clients over $3 million.
