How to Write

Step 1 – Download in PDF, Microsoft Word (.docx) or Open Document Text (.odt).

1 – Save The File On This Page To Develop A Massage Therapist Agreement

The first task in documenting a contractor agreement with a Massage Therapist will be to download a copy. This can be accomplished by clicking on the “PDF,” “Word,” or “ODT” button to access this contract as a pdf or word processing file. Generally, it’s recommended to supply information onscreen using an editing program, but you can open the pdf version with your browser to print it. In either case, save the file you use to your machine for easy access and future use.

2 – The Basic Facts Defining This Document Must Be Presented

Begin supplying information to this document with the calendar date that it becomes active. Place this date on the blank line labeled “Effective Date.” The calendar date you place here will be considered when this document becomes active and when both signature parties will be obligated to abide by it. The first article will identify this document as an agreement between a Company and a Contractor. In this case, the Company will be the entity hiring the Massage Therapist, while the Contractor is the Massage Therapist. Use the first blank space to record the full name of the hiring Company. If this is an individual make sure to enter his or her first, middle, and last names. If the Company is a business entity such as a company or corporation then make sure to fill in this entity’s entire name as it appears on the books. The second, third, or fourth space in this statement requires the mailing address the Company uses for its correspondence. This should an address that is well maintained. Notice a separate line has been reserved for the street address, city, and state in the Company’s mailing address. The full name of the Massage Therapist should be presented in the fourth blank space. Finally, satisfy the remainder of this statement with the street address, city, and state of the Massage Therapist’s mailing address.

3 – Indicate When This Agreement Is In Effect And When It Will Terminate

In “II. Term Of Agreement,” the lifespan when this working arrangement will be discussed. We can quickly solidify this term by marking one of three checkbox statements then supplying the requested information. If the lifespan of this agreement will begin on a specific calendar date and exist (potentially) indefinitely unless the Company or Massage Therapist terminates it then mark the checkbox attached to the bold label “Start Date Only.” If there will be both a specific calendar date when this job begins and a predetermined date of termination then, mark the “Start And End Dates” checkbox. This selection will require two items of information. First, fill in the exact calendar date when this agreement starts on the first two blank lines, then on the next two blank lines provide the last calendar date when it may obligate the signature parties. In some cases, neither of these descriptions will adequately describe the time frame when this contract obligates the signature parties to its contents. The third checkbox (labeled “Other”) will include an area where you may directly provide this definition.

4 – Define The Duties And Payment Of The Massage Therapist

The third article, labeled “Duties” will also contain an area that requires information directly provided. The blank lines after the statement “The Duties Of The Contractor Are As Follows” should be used to describe what duties the Massage Therapist must perform in order to satisfy the obligations of this agreement. The compensation the Massage Therapist should expect for satisfying his or her duties will also have to be documented in this paperwork. The article titled “IV. Payment Amount” will allow you to handle this task easily. Choose one of the three checkbox statements to define how the Massage Therapist’s pay will be determined when working for the Company.

If the Company will pay the Massage Therapist an “Hourly Rate” during the time he or she is working, then mark the first checkbox. This selection requires additional items supplied to the language it contains. Thus, enter the dollar amount the Massage Therapist will earn for each hour of work on the first blank space in this statement, the dollar amount that will be earned for every 30-minute session on the second blank line, and the dollar amount the Company will pay for every 15 minute session the Massage therapist provides on the last blank space. The second checkbox statement will define the Massage Therapist’s pay rate as a percentage of the fees collected for the services provided. If this is the case, then mark the checkbox statement labeled “Percentage Rate” then record the percentage of the collected fees the Massage Therapist should expect on the blank space preceding the percentage sign. If neither of these statements accurately describes how the Massage Therapist’s pay will be determined by the Company then, mark the third checkbox and report the exact method the Company will use to calculate the Massage Therapist’s compensation on the blank lines after the word “Other.”

5 – Provide Some Additional Details To This Agreement

Article “V. Clothing/Apparel” will require that we define whether the Company will require that the Massage Therapist must wear a uniform If so, then mark the first checkbox statement in this section and describe the apparel the Company expects the Massage Therapist to wear during working hours or cite an attachment with this information presented in it. If the Massage Therapist will not be expected to wear any particular uniform or apparel then, mark the second checkbox. In the sixth section of this document, we must define the “Payment Method” the Company will use to provide compensation to the Massage Therapist. That is, how often the Massage Therapist may expect payment for his or her services. You may select the checkbox labeled “Daily,” “Weekly,” “Bi-Weekly,” “Monthly,” and “Other.” Notice the last checkbox selection contains a blank line where a specific pay schedule may be reported more accurately if required. The example below will display a “Monthly” pay schedule. Some Massage Therapists will be obligated to pay rent to the Company to maintain the working contract between the two. If this will be a requirement for this working relationship, then mark the first checkbox in the seventh article (“VII. Rent”). You must fill in the rent amount on the blank line after the dollar sign in this statement and report the physical address of the space the Massage Therapist is renting across the last three blank spaces. If the Company does not require the Massage Therapist to pay rent, then check the box attached to the “Not Pay Rent” statement.  The eighth article will seek to define whether the Company or the Massage Therapist will be required to pay for the equipment and supplies used during the Massage Therapist during working hours. Select the checkbox labeled “Company,” if the Company must pay for these items   If the Massage Therapist will be expected to pay for the equipment and supplies used then mark the checkbox labeled “Contractor.” The next article requiring attention is “IX. Termination Of Agreement.” This article will solidify which of these parties will retain the right to terminate this work contract. If “Either Party” may terminate this agreement at will then fill in the checkbox corresponding to the first statement. This selection will contain a blank space where you record how many days’ notice the terminating party must give the remaining party before officially canceling this paperwork. If only the Company can terminate this agreement then, mark the second checkbox, and report how many days’ notice the Massage Therapist must receive from the Company before the contract is ended. If only the Massage Therapist may terminate this agreement at will then mark the third checkbox. If this is the case, then make sure to report how many days’ notice before the termination the Massage Therapist must give on the blank space provided. You can give a specific detail of who may terminate this contract and how such a termination must occur using the blank lines in the last checkbox selection. Make sure to mark the checkbox if you must describe how this contract should be canceled.
