Contractors Agreement Template

A contractors agreement is entered into when one party wishes to engage a contractor to provide services. This contractors agreement is drafted to protect the interests of the party engaging the contractor and is intended to set out a description of the services and the commercial terms (e.g. price and payment method) at which the contractor will be engaged.

It is recommended that the contractor’s agreement is entered prior to the engagement. The contractor may agree to provide a one-off service for a set fee or continuing services to the principal for a pre-determined length of time for a fee.

What’s included?

The LegalVision Contractors Agreement template sets out:
  • the terms of the contractor relationship;
  • the rights, responsibilities and obligations of the contractor and principal; and
  • business processes such as payment, fees and invoicing.

The document is 7 pages long and contains 10 sections and 1 schedule.

The LegalVision Contractors Agreement template is a very basic contractor’s agreement. If your contractor relationship is more complex, then it’s important that you have a lawyer assist you to draft the following clauses:

  • an unpaid invoices collection clause;
  • a confidentiality clause;
  • the ability for the contractor to be paid on commission;
    a subcontracting clause allowing the Principal to restrict the ability of the Contractor to subcontract the services;
  • a sophisticated dispute resolution clause;
  • a sophisticated workplace health and safety clause;
  • a non-compete clause;
  • a provision to protect your intellectual property and to allow the contractor to use it if required; and
  • additional provisions in related to the rights, responsibilities and obligations of the contractor and principal, particularly if an agreement has been reached on particular issues.
