I have no idea. I guess you could contact the Health Department. Anyone who voluntarily participates in "risky behavior" needs to protect themselves; only someone naive would trust others to protect them.

I know of no law that requires an employer to provide STD testing, it is up to the individuals. Also, actors are typically hired as individual contractors, so they are technically self employed. Commercial activity in a home is a matter of local zoning laws.

    In Illinois, it is illegal to create pornography if it can be deemed obscenity, and the definition for obscenity is very broad and very conservative. Therefore, you can pretty well count on it being illegal anywhere in Illinois to produce any sort of pornography. Doing so in any home would violate zoning laws. Report this to your local police.

    It all sounds illegal and you should call the police and make a report. If the company is in Los Angeles, also call the LA FILM Office. No one has a license to make porn films at their home, since a home would not be zoned for an adult sex business. When you make your reports, be sure to say your name must be kept confidential and may not appear on any paperwork. Do all you can to protect your own safety while you report this company.

    Testing is not a legal requirement. The actors make a determination on whether they wish to work there under those guidelines. They can get testing on their own if they wish. If they are in compliance with zone laws then they may conduct business. Why is this such a big issue for you?
