Document Overview

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

This document is based on federal law and does not address all potential state law distinctions; thus, you should check any relevant state and local laws.

A consulting agreement should balance the company's expectations regarding the consultant's services and the consultant's discretion and independence in providing services so that the consultant is properly categorized as an independent contractor and not as an employee. The agreement should also reflect the parties' status, such as distinguishing between an individual's role as a consultant and that of a retired employee. The agreement should also address confidentiality obligations of the consultant. This Consulting Agreement is intended as a general drafting aid and will require modification according to the particular circumstances and the intentions of the parties.

  • Performance of the consultancy services.
