To remove many of the issues with the contract, she outlined four simple points. And she emphasized that, in its current form, it would remain not only problematic from an ethical standpoint but also susceptible to challenge from a legal standpoint also.
Here’s how she would amend it:
„For the sake of legal certainty and predictability of outcome before court, split this single contract into two: One on marketing and the other on employment.“
„For the employment contract you need to get at least a minimum wage for the player’s work. Add the LCS stipend as premium for being in the starting roster.“
„For the marketing contract, you could keep the €350 in the marketing contract if it is an unknown newcomer with average potential. I would always go for more here if acting as a player’s lawyer based on what the contract asks players to do.“
„Get rid of the €2,000 penalty and lower it to a proportionate amount (employment contract 500 Euro/marketing contract €200). Add penalties for the agent/employer as well.“
Baumann was honestly shocked at the content. But as someone with a long history in esports, I wasn’t. I’ve seen many like them. Regardless, many organisations still profess to put player welfare first—when, in reality, the only people who should be trusted to ensure a player’s welfare are the players themselves.Quelle: http://www.dailydot.com/esports/mym-player-contract-court-legality/
