When hiring a new employee or contractor, it is important to have a clear agreement in place outlining the terms of the relationship. This document, known as a hire agreement, protects both parties and sets expectations for the work to be done.

Here is an example of a hire agreement:

1. Parties involved: This section should clearly identify the parties involved in the agreement, including the employer or client and the employee or contractor.

2. Scope of work: This section should outline the specific tasks and responsibilities the employee or contractor will be responsible for. It should also include any relevant deadlines or milestones.

3. Compensation: This section should detail the compensation the employee or contractor will receive, including the method and frequency of payment.

4. Termination: This section should outline the circumstances under which the agreement can be terminated, as well as the notice required for either party to terminate the agreement.

5. Confidentiality: If the employee or contractor will have access to sensitive information, this section should detail the confidentiality requirements and penalties for violations.

6. Intellectual property: If the employee or contractor will be creating any intellectual property (such as code or design work), this section should clarify who will own the intellectual property and under what conditions.

7. Non-compete: If the employee or contractor will be prohibited from working for competitors or starting their own competing business, this section should outline the terms of the non-compete agreement.

8. Indemnification: This section should outline the responsibility of each party to indemnify the other in the event of any legal claims or damages.

9. Governing law: This section should clarify which jurisdiction’s laws will govern the agreement.

By having a clear hire agreement in place, both parties can enter into the working relationship with confidence and clarity. It is important to consult with legal counsel to ensure that the agreement is legally binding and enforceable.
