Get a Model Contract for Search and Placement Staffing

Do you feel pressured to accept clients’ contracts? Are your clients asking to be indemnified against various types of liability?

ASA and the National Association of Personnel Services have jointly developed the first authoritative, professional template for firms that provide recruiting, search, and placement services to use as a model in preparing client agreements.

The model contract offers recruiting firms a basic agreement plus extensive optional provisions—along with detailed explanations as to their purpose and use—to afford great flexibility in tailoring the document to particular client circumstances. The model contract includes language dealing with alternative fee calculations, volume discounts, retainer and engagement fees, and various guarantee clauses, such as replacements, refunds, and credits. The model contract also lists provisions best avoided.

The model contract for search and placement staffing is available to ASA members at The document provides suggested language but is not intended as legal advice.
