Looks good to me, there is one thing that would concern me is the 'picking up and dropping off' client doggies, will you supply the vehicle and if so maybe you need something in the agreement if they have a collision etc.

Would love to see the final...

Chris has a very valid point. If she is using her car to pick up and deliver you will of coarse be paying fuel costs & insurance. All the rest would be obvious wouldn't it. Not a big one for work place agreements. Paper contracts are broken by employers/employee's all the time so who does it cover ? If it doesn't work out then unless theft is involved you wouldn't go after a nineteen year old for anything surely. Just because the client calls you for a booking doesn't mean you own them. They are free to use whom ever they prefer. I do understand your angel though.

I can't see the point but that's just my opinion. scratch

good point about the car ....for ease I may just leave hubby to do the drop offs & pick ups...(there is only 3 oldies that we do anyways ) ..never thought of what would happen if she had an accident... yay thats why I put this up :-)

Its not really to cover anyone more so that my expectations as an employer are clearly know to her...no grey areas so to speak that I want this in place ...we have a sat morning kid come in..& on those days She does not think she has to do anything but bath & clip & if its quiet she sits & does nothing ...even when I mention the other tasks she shrugs em off..such n such can do em ..hmmm In my salon everybody does everything ..including the bosses ..team effort to get the day complete works best....I dont pay you to facebook ;-)

I dont mean that I own the clients..they sure are welcome to use any groomer that they like :-) ..trying to get the point across that if a clients phones or is at the salon employee cannot say...'oh I can do it after hours for cheaper for you' kinda thing...or take their numbers home & contact them chasing work if she leaves us .... May need to reword that point too :-) any suggestions



Cheers for the feedback :-) appreciate it

Just the way it should be however I just think a written piece of paper won't change that. If she is going to slack off and throw it on the other junior she will. A good work ethic and attitude won't come from a signed agreement. This has come from years of working with much younger staff in big companies. They can sign there life away as soon as your back is turned they will slack off unless they have the incentive not to. I've always admired and worked hard for employers that are hands on and team orientated. You can only hope your fine example of TEAM effort can rub off.

May need to reword that point too :-)
You are right and you would be furious to be undercut from someone you have put so much time into. Maybe... "the dog in my backyard bites so don't jump the fence :-0" You'll think of something....

What's the saying..."you never send an employee in to do what you wouldn't or haven't done yourself ". There shouldn't be any grey area when lead by your high example Nat.....

I would add this just in case you have either left something out or if your business expands in other directions - "And to contribute as a team member to the overall smooth running of the salon."
i would also review every 3-4 months for a year, then increase it to 6 months after that.
