Welcome to our new segment, Old Man Yells at the Sky! This a new piece of content where we try to tackle some of the more contentious issues facing the gaming community.
This month, we talk about whether or not LARP (live action role play) games are protecting themselves and their "staff" by following state and federal labor laws. We want folks to be aware that sometimes even a hobby should be following basic FLSA (Fair Labor Standards Act) guidelines with those who do any type of work at their games.
We would like to note and thank LARP Cynic and the article, LARP and Employment – is my LARP legal? Fan Submission, that inspired this conversation.
As noted in the show, we are NOT professionals by any means and any concerns about the topics addressed would be better asked of a professional in that field.
