About this HR consultancy contract

This document is suitable for any individual who calls himself a HR consultant. Of course your industry sector affects the work you do. But this is a legal document, not a specification for your work. This contract is for an individual consultant to present to any client as his 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 consultant, 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 client, 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.

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

Effortless staff documentation
26 June 2020
The HR Consultant contract that I purchased through Net Lawman was very easy to use and edit, and the notes that accompanied it were incredibly helpful. The legal jargon is kept to a minimum and straightforward explanations are given. The cost of the contract is also reasonable. I would definitely use this service again should I need to.

Solid Foundation
05 March 2020
I was a bit dubious about using an online service for a consultant contract. But I needed it quickly, so took the plunge. However, I found the Net Lawman template easy to work with, it offered a solid foundation, and seemed to include all the elements and paragraphs that I expected.
The only thing I felt was missing, were a few substantial prompt-lines for what responsibilities might be normally included in the remit of a HR Consultant. Although, I appreciate some might suggest, this information belongs in a JD. That said, I still give it 5*, based on ease of use and value for money.
