Projects can mean many things in the entertainment world. In Wrapbook, a project is a container for all the workers you will pay, reimburse, and share documents with for the course of a single production.
Each project that you work on should be entered in as a new project within Wrapbook—be it a feature film, short, commercial, event, or television episode. If a particular production project will shoot in multiple states, you will also need to create a separate project for each state. Each separate project within Wrapbook will ensure that the payroll run for a shoot in a particular state will stay compliant with that state’s tax legislature.
Providing details about your project will help us determine your Workers Compensation Application. As an Employer of Record, Wrapbook provides Workers Compensation for workers (Employees and Loan Outs) as a part of the cost of running payroll and disburses those payments when and if needed.
Note: If you select a project that is Contractors only, we won’t be able to provide Workers Comp through payroll.
Certain project types and situations may lead to more questions. Specialized workers and stunts (such as stunt work on aircraft) demand higher safety standards and take longer for approval. Please submit projects with details about how you intend to mitigate risk to these workers further in advance so as to ensure timely approval.
If the project is a union signatory, select Yes - is a union signatory. Click the radio buttons and fill in the required information. This will allow Wrapbook to calculate, remit and report pension and health benefits correctly.
For projects that include union workers, set up your project as employing all worker types and elect the unions you’ll be utilizing for this particular production. If you don’t know the Unions, you can add additional unions throughout the length of your project, but you will need to select them for your project prior to hiring in order to be able to process payroll.
In addition to filling out the union information, provide your contract agreement with the union, your contracts with your workers, and any timekeeping or additional union specific information. Select View Project>Documents to upload. For Union projects you will also have the option allow workers to to enter travel or work location details on their timecards. Select Yes - collect travel details to enable or No - don't collect travel details.
