About this corporate HR consultancy contract

This document is suitable for any business which calls itself an HR consultancy. This contract is for a corporate HR consultancy to present to any client as its contract. See below for alternative consultancy contracts. It may be edited either by you before you submit it, or in negotiation with your client. It is drawn to protect you, the consultancy, but should also be acceptable to your clients.

This is an “umbrella” contract, set up for the possibility of future assignments under the same terms. That way, if you want more work from the same consultant, all you have to do is define it and refer to this agreement. Even if you expect never to enter into a new work assignment, you do not have to delete anything on that account.

The HR consultancy contract provides for the specification of work to be placed in a schedule to this agreement on the first time it is used. All later assignments of work will automatically be subject to this contract without specific mention.

There are options in several areas, notably contract summary, payment systems and working arrangements.

Key features

  • Ease of use (as always with Net Lawman documents)
  • Thorough coverage of legal areas
  • Practical, alternative business provisions
  • No requirement for you be your own lawyer

Great Service
02 May 2015
My biggest concern using Net Lawman was that it wouldn't fit the NZ market. I wanted something accurate quick and cost effective. I decided to buy it because I did a bit of research and felt comfortable with the reviews.

The document was easy to customise for my business and took care of some issues I would not have thought of. I feel like it protect me and my clients. My first client to use this will be a lawyer so I look forward to her feedback.

I have found by having this document I was able to move forward in building my agreement process, and I can confidently put it on letterhead and present to clients. I have already recommended Net Lawman to others because it is important no matter how small your business is, that you have a professional agreement for services and a lot of small businesses I see can not afford legal support yet.
