This is a simple company friendly consultancy agreement for engaging independent contractors or consultants (e.g. individuals or sole operator companies) to work within a business.

This template includes a restraint on the independent contractor to ensure that the independent contractor does not jeopardise the company’s business (by competing or similar) during the term and for a set period after. To be enforceable, a restraint must be reasonable. This, in turn, will depend on the facts relating to the agreement. However, the longer the restraint and the broader the restrained area, the more likely that arguments could be raised about the enforceability of the restraint.
