Would a self-drafted contract with an individual, not based in Australia offer any protection?
I would like to outsource some instructional design work to an individual in the Phillipians. We would be working privately - ie without any third party connections/websites. If were to draft a contract for us would it offer both of us any protection?
Rebecca Carroll-Bell and Jenny Tse are two of the legal minds here on Savvy who could undoubtedly answer this question more fully. From my own observation, this looks like a straightforward proposal confirmation document requiring agreement on the scope of work prior to the project being commissioned, and subject to the standard Terms and Conditions of your business.
