The Los Angeles City Attorney’s office has launched an investigation into Hollywood’s casting workshops to determine whether they violate the 2009 Krekorian Talent Scam Prevention Act, which outlaws advance-fee talent representation services.

Casting workshops are allowed under the law, but they can’t offer auditions or employment as part of their services. The rules were outlined in a 2010 letter sent to the industry by then-City Attorney Carmen Trutanich.

The issue will be discussed at the Casting Society of America’s workshop committee meeting tonight in Burbank.
