Areas of Law / Employment

I manage a singer who was performing at a social club recently when her musical equipment broke down as she was nearing the end of her act. They offered to pay her £100 of her £200 fee. She refused, and I took the matter up with the club and the agent without success. As a result she’s been offered hardly any work since. Does she have a case for payment of her whole fee?

A court would probably think she was entitled to a percentage of her fee proportionate to the amount of her act she had performed when the equipment failed. But it sounds as though the singer is losing money hand over fist while this dispute continues. In retrospect she should have accepted the £100, but in the interests of her career it’s surely time to forget the fee and get her back on stage.
