At the end of the day, all you need is an agreement that the contractors are not employers, need to invoice you, not have their superannuation paid and be liable for their own costs.
Plus have an ABN and the like, along with insurance.
Make it clear that they are not employees.

do we need to registr the cotnract to the labor arbitet or it should be stipulated in the contract the name of arbiter
extra juidicial resolution of dispute, so that no court will intervene.At what point to stop the contract? it must be stated in the contract, that if the salesman cant meet the quota. dowe have the right to terminate the contract?
Solicitor: Daniel, Solicitor replied 2 years ago

No need for it to be registered.
Sadly however, you cannot contract out of a court being able to intervene.
You can have the contract terminated with notice, it is more appropriate than an 'end date.'

What i am afraid of is when they leave, they will disclose our personal information to others. Is there documents for that too? or is that included in the agreement as well? They are also being paid in commissions only, is there any law on that and needed to be mentioned in the agreement?You also said they need an ABN and insurance. Do we have to collect there Insurance details? and is there any problems if we collect there personal details such as license, medicare just incase we run into problems in the future?

How about bacground checks? is possible to do criminal checks?
Solicitor: Daniel, Solicitor replied 2 years ago

Hello
It would be seen as prudent for you to get their ABN and copy of insurance.
You can have them provide a criminal record also.
In respect of personal info, it maybe canvassed in the agreement, however it is matter for you.

They are both interchangeable.
You can offer it with the tax invoice.
