  • $175.00

Our contractor agreement can be used by a company who is engaging a company (or an individual) on a contractor basis to perform services for the Company over a specific period of time. It can also be used to pass on obligations to the subcontractor that a Company is required to perform under a Head Contract.

How this document can help you

When engaging a contractor to provide services, it is worthwhile recording the terms and conditions of the engagement in a contractor agreement so that each party is aware of its rights and obligations, and so that the commercial terms of the engagement are clearly specified. Engaging a contractor on a 'handshake basis' leaves open the prospect of disputes arising. 

Our Contractor Agreement template can help clarify that the contractor is engaged as an independent contractor (and not an employee), the fees and payment terms that will govern fee payments to the Contractor, the Services that are to be performed, who owns the intellectual property developed during the engagement, termination rights and other important provisions.

Common questions

Can I engage an employee as a contractor?

Some organisations think that they can engage employees as contractors to escape the obligtion to pay employees their employment benefits, and for other related reasons. However, if an employee is engaged as a contractor under a written contractor agreement while the relationship continues as one which has the characteristics of the employer/employee relationship, the employer will generally not be able to escape the obligations to provide employee benefits to the contractor (employee) or its other obligations that it owes in favour of employees.
