#ProtectFreelancersToo

End sexual harassment at work

Government committed to introducing a mandatory duty on employers to prevent sexual harassment at work. Now we need action to protect all freelancers too.

Have you been asked to work for free?

The MU regularly hears from musicians asked to work for free. Asking musicians to work for free is unacceptable at any time.
