Consultancy Agreement (sometimes referred to as a Contractors Agreement) is an agreement or contract between the independent contractor and the client company. These contracts are usually more specific as many contractors are brought in because they are specialists in their field. There are several factors to keep in mind when preparing the contract and it can become very complex. Although there are basic templates available, they only offer minimal security to businesses and are often too vague to properly secure the interests of both parties.
A few important terms to consider are:
- Conflict of interests;
- Termination Clauses;
- Restrictive covenants post termination;
- Payment Timeline; and
- Length of Employment.
