Contracts of Employment & Subcontractor Agreements

Templates for a contract of employment and a subcontractor agreement.

Didn't find your answer?

We are a small firm of ICAEW Chartered Accountants and have a couple of employees and subcontractors.  We need to have formal contracts for both in place.  Does anyone have templates or recommend someone who can draft these for us?

Many thanks

I'd be very wary indeed of using a generic template (if that's what you meant) (although obviously interesting to get some ideas). Have you asked the ICAEW if they could point you towards a law firm who could help? I'd certainly be looking for a firm with employment law strengths.

ICAEW have a helpsheet on employing subcontractors which includes an outline of an agreement. You may want to have a read of this.

There are plenty of firms of solicitors who could help you. I also agree that just using a generic template is a bad idea. Employment law moves on regularly, so you need legal advice for your particular situation. You shouldn't have to pay more than around £200 or so per type of contract, and that's not a lot to save your bacon in future. Treat it as an investment.

The self employed agreements on Simply Docs have always worked for me. The main ones are under the business tab with similar versions under the Employment tab.

Bright Contracts - Haven’t used it myself but I saw it on a GDPR webinar recently run by BrightPay. It look pretty good.
