A consultancy agreement is an agreement between a consultant and his client for the provision of the consultant’s services. Under the consultancy agreement, the consultant will render the agreed services as an independent contractor rather than as a company employee.
As consultants are not considered employees of the company, they are not entitled to the benefits and protections afforded to company employees covered under Singapore’s employment laws. It is therefore important for the consultancy agreement to flesh out the desired scope of the client’s obligations to the consultant to ensure that the consultant’s interests are adequately protected.
