What is the right contract to use?
The purpose of a written contract is to capture the agreements and arrangements that are important to a trading or employment relationship. The document not only serves as a reminder of what was agreed from time to time, but the terms are invariably critical in the event of a dispute. For example if wrong terms are used in the context of your services or engagement, claims for fees due may fail, employment status may be affected, and unexpected regulatory liabilities and risks may follow.
Exceptional business and employment terms
Used widely throughout the UK since 1997, Lawspeed recruitment and hirer suitable engagement contracts are exceptional, accurate and commercially realistic. Drawing on our wide experience in the recruitment/hire/supply/contractor sector, Lawspeed created templates not only provide best protection taking into account the key legal, regulatory and commercial aspects, but are designed to be user friendly (i.e not stuffy and old fashioned), and ‘admin light’.
Like cars, contracts require servicing from time to time to remain roadworthy. For example where new legislation is imposed such as the GDPR or IR35, changes are necessary to keep the contracts fit for purpose. As a result Lawspeed contracts come with an auto update option, referred to by us as ‘contract maintenance’. If a change is required for new commercial or legal reasons, we make the update and deliver it to you, saving you the time and the trouble.
