What’s Included in the Hairdresser Legal Bundle?

1. Hairdresser Rent A Chair Agreement

Rent out a chair in your salon and earn extra income!

A Hairdresser Rent A Chair Agreement is a contract to rent out a chair in your salon to a freelancer, such as another hairdresser, beauty therapist or masseuse. The freelancer is self-employed and runs their own business. As an independent contractor, they have their own clients, set their own hours and provide their own equipment. They pay a Licence Fee to the salon in exchange for use of the premises.

It’s really important to manage a rent a chair arrangement properly so that you protect your salon, your clients and your reputation.


2. Casual Employment Contract

Use our handy Casual Employment Contract template to employ new casual staff.

This contract covers all of the important terms of employment, including start date, position and duties, hours of work and rate of pay.

Casual employees do not have any set hours or guarantee of ongoing work, unlike part time or full time employees. Casuals employees provide businesses with a great deal of flexibility as they can be hired as needed.

Casual employees are paid a higher hourly pay rate (casual loading) but do not receive entitlements such as annual leave, sick leave, notice upon termination and redundancy pay.


3. Part Time Employment Contract

Use our handy Part Time Employment Contract template to employ new part time staff.

This contract covers all of the important terms of employment, including start date, position and duties, hours of work, remuneration, probation, leave and termination.

Part time employees generally work less than 38 hours per week, have regular hours and are entitled to the same benefits as a full-time employee, but on a pro rata basis


4. Full Time Employment Contract

Use our handy Full Time Employment Contract template to employ new full time staff.

This contract covers all of the important terms of employment, including start date, position and duties, hours of work, remuneration, probation, leave and termination.

Full time employees generally work 38 hours per week, have regular hours and have an expectation of ongoing work.


5. Privacy Policy

A Privacy Policy is a document that explains how you will manage the personal information you collect from website visitors and customers. Most Australian websites need a privacy policy to comply with Australian privacy laws.

Even if you just have a simple website, you should have a Privacy Policy. There are sizable fines for breaching the Privacy Act, so it is important to comply.


6. Website Terms of Use

Website Terms of Use set out the rules for your website visitors. They are designed to protect you from the risks associated with running a website, and to protect your intellectual property as well.

Our Website Terms of Use template includes rules about what visitors can and can’t do on your website (such as post comments or share your content). It also includes a Website Disclaimer to limit your liability for any loss incurred by someone relying on the information on your website


7. WHS Policy

WHS Policy (Workplace Health and Safety Policy) outlines your commitment to ensuring the health and safety of your employees and others in your workplace.

Business owners have an obligation to provide a safe workplace for their workers and other people that interact with their business. Part of this duty is to identify and eliminate or reduce risks.

The goal of this policy is to achieve a safe and incident free workplace. Having a good workplace health and safety policy and procedure in your business helps to ensure risks are identified and managed appropriately.


Are these templates legally binding?

How much does it cost to Rent A Chair in a salon?

There a few different ways you can charge for renting a chair in a salon:

  1. Fixed Rent – the stylist pays a set amount per day/week/month
  2. Percentage Commission – the salon owner takes a cut of the stylist’s total revenue from clients (usually around 40-60%)
  3.  Combination – the salon charges both fixed rent AND a percentage of revenue from the stylist.

We have included all of these options in our template. You just need to choose the one you want to use.

The actual amount you charge depends on what you negotiate and what both parties consider to be a fair amount which you agree on.


Employer Obligations

We recommend that you consult the Fair Work website to check any Awards and agreements which may apply before you use these templates.

As an employer, it is your responsibility to pay at least the minimum wage and entitlements to your employees under the applicable modern award or enterprise agreement.

You must also provide all new employees with a copy of the Fair Work Information Statement by law.

You can view a handy guide to hiring new employees HERE


Are my employees covered by an Award?

Awards apply to employers and employees depending on the industry they work in and the type of job worked. Every award has information about who it covers in the coverage clause (usually clause 4) and the job classifications (usually in the pay clause or a schedule).

There are more than 100 industry or occupation awards that cover most people who work in Australia. An employer can be covered by more than one award depending on the jobs the employees do.

You can use the Find My Award tool to check for award coverage on the Fair Work website. In some cases there may not be an award that covers your industry/job role (this is known as “award-free”).

The Hair and Beauty Industry Award 2010 is likely to apply to you.

If you are unsure about the status of an employee, you should seek legal advice.


Are these templates editable?

Yes, the templates come in Word format so you are free to make changes to the document.

However, we do not recommend you make changes outside of the fields we have highlighted in the document. The clauses and wording have been written by a lawyer for a good reason. Deleting clauses or modifying them can affect the legal protections contained in the document.


What if the law changes?

If the law changes, we’ll email you with the changes and updates to add to your existing templates. So please ensure you keep us updated if your email address changes.
