Subcontractors or Employees?


Wednesday, November 22, 2023

We have advised on and prepared sub-contracts in Perth and Western Australia for 25 years for clients in construction, mining and all other commercial areas.

For further information relating to Building & Construction and sub-contracts read Building and ConstructionContracts and Commercial Advice and Building Contracts and Sub-Contracts.

Whatever industry you are in, clients also need to be certain whether their workers are independent contractors or employees. If you don’t have a proper sub-contract your workers may be classified as employees even though you think you are treating them as independent contractors.

You may be exposed to various claims, including superannuation and claims by the ATO.

Our rates and fixed prices are lower than the prices charged by many Perth Commercial law firms because we own our offices so we don't pay the exorbitant St George's Tce rent that many commercial law firms do.  

If you want a quote on a subcontract that can be used for all sub-contractors, or have any need for advice on any type of commercial contract, please contact us.

We offer fixed fees for preparation of a Sub-Contract Agreement.  Our fixed fees for preparation of a Sub-Contract Agreement are from $1,500.00 exc GST.

Liability limited by a scheme approved under Professional Standards Legislation.
