An independent contractor is an individual or business that provides goods or services to another party but is not employed by that party. An Independent Contractor Agreement allows you and the other party to lay out the details and time frame of the services provided as well as the manner and methods used to accomplish the end result contracted.
Sometimes in business dealings that you have with another party it is necessary to share confidential information and materials. By signing a reciprocal confidentiality and nondisclosure agreement, both parties agree to share information and materials with each other but not with any third parties. This document is helpful in protecting trade secrets and other proprietary information.
If you have a problem employee who violates any aspect of company policy, you need to issue them an Employee Disciplinary Notice. This written notice details the type of problem behavior they are exhibiting, when it occurred and the corrective action to be taken, such as suspension without pay. This form provides useful documentation should the employee eventually be terminated.
In some situations, you may be required to enter into a confidentiality agreement, also known as a nondisclosure agreement, used to protect sensitive information transmitted between you and another party that is often considered confidential. This information may include test results, client names, writing, passwords, figures, trade secrets and similar data.
If you have problem employees working at your business, a Final Warning Before Dismissal is written notice provided to the employee informing them that they face termination if they don't change whatever conduct or behavior made you give them verbal or written first and second warnings. This protects you as the employer from employee claims of being fired unfairly.
The purpose of this agreement is to formally acknowledge a change to the original terms of an existing contract. A contract is an agreement between you and another party. Although all contracts do not need to be in writing, in order to avoid later disagreements as to the original terms, most are usually set forth in writing.
