Greece/ 5.1 General legislation  

5.1.6 Labour laws

In order to practice some of the professions related to the cultural industries (especially the ones related to technical aspects of cinema or theatre production) it is necessary to have a special licence granted by the Ministry of Culture after fulfilment of certain criteria and specialised exams. Special provisions regarding unemployment rights for temporary workers apply to cultural professionals; however all social policy provisions are currently undergoing a general re-evaluation due to the financial crisis.
