Defendant was a signatory as an employer to a collective bargaining agreement with the union which supplied lighting technicians for the TV commercials that defendant produced or that were produced by non-signatory production companies that rented defendant’s services and its signatory status to hire the technicians.  This decision reverses a summary judgment in defendant’s favor on wage claims by technicians who were not paid wages by such a non-signatory production company that rented defendant’s services and signatory status.  It holds that defendant is an employer under the collective bargaining agreement it signed and that there is at least a triable issue of fact as to whether it exercised control over the technicians’ employment or suffered or permitted them to work for it, thus falling within the IWC’s definition of “employer.”
