Document Overview

This Consulting Agreement is designed a private employer retaining the services of a consultant to work as an independent contractor.

So that the consultant is properly categorized as an independent contractor and an employee, a consulting agreement should balance the company's expectations regarding the consultant's services and the consultant's discretion and independence in providing services.

It may be important to consider if any confidential information or trade secrets are being shared and whether a Non-Disclosure Agreement (also known as confidentiality agreement) might be relevant.

What does the Consulting Agreement cover?

  • Performance of the consultancy services.

  • Payment.

  • The status of the consultant as an independent contractor.

  • Intellectual property.

  • Confidentiality.

  • Relevant warranties and indemnities.

  • Termination.

Other names for Consulting Agreement include:

  • Consultancy Agreement.

  • Consulting Contract.

  • Consulting Services Agreement.
