New: Independent Contractor/Consultancy Agreement

The Independent Contractor/Consultant Agreement adds to our expanding HR document range — which currently includes:

  • an HR Policy & Procedures Manual; and
  • a standard employment contract.

As with all our document packages, the Independent Contractor/Consultancy Agreement is signed-off by Maddocks — a top-20 Australian law firm.

When is the new Independent Contractor/Consultant Agreement relevant?

The Independent Contractor/Consultancy Agreement may be used when it is more appropriate for an organisation to arrange for work to be performed by an external person or company rather than an employee.

In those circumstances, the Agreement Cleardocs provides is relevant when the organisation (the Principal) wishes to engage a service provider (the Contractor/Consultant):

  • who is an individual; or
  • that is a "one-man-band" company — where the services are provided by a director or only employee of the company (and no-one else is involved in providing them); or
  • that is a small company — where the services are provided by a single nominated individual. In this context, "small company" typically means one to 3 directors. If the company is any larger, then a general services agreement may be more appropriate, or one or both companies may have standard terms and conditions.

To help work out whether someone providing services to the organisation will be an "employee" or a "Contractor/Consultant", you can read more information here.
