Some legal issues to consider in writing a contract: keep it simple. As best as you can.
Make sure you have a paragraph in your contract that says the customer cannot alter the hours. This happens all the time. The customer will say, I want you for a 168 hours, and 3 weeks later, and you know they say we don’t need this guy at 4 o’clock anymore, we’ll just have the day working to midnight. He can’t alter the hours.
Make that clear.
