    I have searched and could not find what I was looking for.

    We have picked up more work this season than we planed and now are hiring a few subcontractors. I need to create a contract for us to use with them. Does anyone have one I can use as a template and then edit from there? Some sort of starting point would be a great help.

    I'd probably want some items about the sub not being able to approach your customers for a period of time after subcontracting for you

    Good idea

    That is a good idea if your dealing with people you haven't worked with.
    The guys that work for me have are the same guys I have used in the last 6 years so I don't worry about them.

    But I am going to add that to my form for any new guys.

    Thanks for the idea
