What’s Included in the Recruitment Legal Bundle?
Our Recruitment Legal Bundle includes everything you need to make sure your recruitment business is legally protected!
1. Recruitment Terms of Business
Recruitment Terms of Business set out the legal agreement between a recruitment agency and your clients, and how you will recruit candidates.
This contract covers all of the important aspects of your agreement, including:
🔹 the services you will perform for a client
🔹 fees and charges
🔹 your payment terms
For every new client, you can customise this template to suit your requirements.
Our Recruitment Terms of Business template will help to make sure you get paid for your services. It also covers you in case there is a dispute with a client over your fees.
2. Non-Disclosure Agreement
Give your clients extra peace of mind by signing a Non-Disclosure Agreement before you start working with them. A Non-Disclosure Agreement (also known as an NDA or Confidentiality Agreement) means they can be 100% sure that their precious business information is safe with you.
5. Letter of Demand
When your gentle payment reminders fall on deaf ears, it’s powerful to have a firm and professional Letter of Demand up your sleeve. Our Letter of Demand template will help to keep the cash in your business flowing.
Use our Letter of Demand template to formally request payment of an outstanding debt and provide a warning before commencing legal action. You might be able to recover your debts yourself without spending money on a lawyer or debt collector.
Are these templates legally binding?
All of our templates have been drafted by qualified Australian lawyers who hold an Australian legal practicing certificate.
We are affiliated with a commercial law firm based in Sydney.

Do I need a contract for recruitment?
Yes, definitely! A contract protects both you and your clients.
You should always have a contract signed before you start a new candidate search for a client. Our template clearly sets out the obligations of both the recruitment agency and the client.
If you operate a recruitment agency, you need to protect your business from being excluded from the agreement between your client and the candidate. If this does happen, you need to make sure you still get paid for the introduction!
Our Recruitment Terms of Business template will help to make sure you get paid for your services.
Can’t I copy terms from someone else or download a free template off the internet?
We don’t recommend this approach for a few reasons:
1. You may be committing copyright infringement, which is against the law.
2. You might accidentally copy terms and conditions from another country – if you end up in court for some reason it might be on the other side of the world.
3. Our template has been drafted by an Australian lawyer to make sure it’s legally binding here in Australia.
Are there any other names for Recruitment Terms of Business?
Yes, it’s also known as a Recruitment Agreement, Recruitment Terms and Conditions or a Recruitment Services Agreement.
All of them are basically the same thing, just different names for the contract you use with your clients.
Can we be engaged on an exclusive basis?
Yes, we have included a sub-clause in the contract to cover exclusivity. If you want the arrangement to be exclusive, you need to agree in writing with the client. This is a commercial decision, so it’s up to you.
What happens if the candidate or employer terminates their employment ‘early’?
We have included a Replacement Guarantee in the contract to cover this situation.
If a candidate terminates their employment, or the client terminates their employment due to unsatisfactory performance in the role, you are required to look for a replacement candidate at no extra fee (excluding advertising charges). This is an optional clause, you don’t have to keep it.
We have not included a Refund Policy in our Recruitment Terms of Business template, but you could add this if you wish.
Does the Recruitment Terms of Business template include a Director Guarantee?
Yes, we have included a Director Guarantee as an optional clause (if the client is a company).
What happens if we introduce a candidate who is already known to the Client?
We have included a clause in the contract to cover this situation. If the contact was recent, you would normally not earn fees for this introduction.
Are these templates editable?
Yes, the templates come in Word format so you are free to make changes to the documents.
However, we do not recommend you make changes outside of the fields we have highlighted in the documents. 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 documents.
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.
