Controlling your own Contract – What You Should Know?
It´s hard enough to find work in the first place so when the contract comes along we tend not to give it as much attention as we otherwise should. The Independent Contractors Australia, an independent association who fight for the rights of "free and independent contractors" have published a template which provides an overview of clauses that should be in a proper contract.
When considering your next contract take a look at this template to help you evaluate the fairness of the agreement. Click here to download. For those who are members, in addition to the template the association also provides you an overview of what they term red, amber and green clauses that are dangerous, require caution or are safe to proceed with respectively. We strongly advise that you invest the $55 necessary to become a member of the association and help them fight for your rights. Click here for membership information.
