A subcontractor’s agreement is an agreement between a company (usually referred to as the “contractor”) and a service entity (usually referred to as the “subcontractor”). The subcontractor agrees to provide a service to the contractor for a fee. The subcontractor may agree to provide a one-off service for a set fee or ongoing services to the contractor for a predetermined length of time for a fee.

LegalVision’s LVDox™ Free Subcontractors Agreement sets out:

  • the terms of the subcontractor relationship;
  • the rights, responsibilities and obligations of the subcontractor and contractor; and
  • business processes such as payment, fees and invoicing.

If your subcontractor 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 subcontractor to be paid on commission;
  • a subcontracting clause allowing the contractor to restrict the ability of the subcontractor 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 subcontractor to use it if required; and
  • additional provisions in related to the rights, responsibilities and obligations of the subcontractor and contractor, particularly if an agreement has been reached on particular issues.
