LONDON — Women in Film and Television has launched a confidential employment Web site and helpline available to men and women working in all sectors of the U.K. film and TV industries.

Funding for the first year of $98,567 (£50,000) has been provided by the U.K. Film Council and Skillset.

Advice will cover the full gamut of work-related issues including contract issues, maternity and paternity leave and pay, flexible working hours, statutory disciplinary and dismissal procedures, redundancy pay, jury service, pensions, sickness and statutory sick pay, and equal opportunities questions.
