“It's about the passion”

Design and check your contract

Independent Contractors Australia is most frequently asked for help in designing and checking contracts. What we look for is 'fair contracts'. Here's our Charter of Contractual Fairness. A fair contract should be balanced, giving you, and the business that engages you, equal rights under the contract.


The links below enable you to:
  • Design your own contract.
  • Check good and bad clauses in a contract you have been asked to sign.
We
  • Explain the features of good/bad clauses
  • Give examples of good/bad clauses taken from numerous actual contracts we've accumulated over many years.
This information is designed to help you take control of your contracts so you have high control over your business.
