The government has set up a working group to look at industrial relations in the film industry.
It will be facilitated by the former TVNZ Political Editor, and now lawyer, Linda Clark.
Immigration Minister Iain Lees-Galloway said the 2010 'Hobbit' law meant film production workers were treated as independent contractors, unless they were party to a written employment agreement stating otherwise.
He said those people need a voice in their workplace through collective bargaining.
He said the industry had agreed to work collaboratively to find what he described as a 'durable' solution.
The working group will be made up of key industry players, including Business New Zealand and the Council of Trade Unions.
