Rent-a-room Agreement


SKU: D34 Categories: ,

If you run a hair or beauty salon and you have room to spare, licencing (or “renting”) this additional room to freelancers can be an effective way to add an additional income stream to your business. This arrangement also works really well for freelancers who need a place to work but who may not want to rent out an entire salon!

A clearly drafted “rent a room” agreement will help to ensure that the parties are aware of their responsibilities and obligations prior to use of the room.

This Agreement is for the use of a “room”. If the arrangement relates to the use of a “chair” only, please use a “Rent a Chair” agreement.

It is extremely important that the freelancer brings their own equipment, and manages their own finances and marketing. Basically, they must be their own boss -running their own business to classify as a freelancer/contractor. If a salon owner is using this kind of arrangement as a way to avoid paying payroll costs like leave entitlements or wages, then legal issues can arise and the freelancer may be classified as an employee. Please make sure you obtain appropriate legal advice If you have any concerns about this.
