A service to help members interpret the contracts they face
A good contract is the basis of a fruitful and positive business relationship between freelancer and client. A bad contract can mean disaster, usually for the freelancer.
Through this service, the Canadian Freelance Union will help our members understand and interpret the contracts they face. We will help you understand the sometimes-intentional legalese, and we will even offer suggestions about how a bad contract can be made better.
Remember, a contract is an agreement between two (or more) agreeable parties. You are never obligated to sign a contract, and you are fully within your rights to make any changes you want before signing. Never hesitate to edit, change or cross out sections of an offered contract -- it's your right!
