Monday Morning Memo | Avoid Shades of Gray In Your Recruiting Contract
Recruiters will sometimes attempt to include some marketing into their contracts. This is a terrible idea, a contract is your safeguard against non-paying clients, and it's no place for marketing.

In this Monday Morning Memo, we will be talking about some things we HATE seeing in our client's contracts. We’re going to go over words and phrases to avoid at all costs. We suggest you go over your own agreement to look for these "shades-of-gray makers". If you find any, you should consult with your attorney immediately.
Gray Areas and Trying to Get the Deal Done 
When you try to get the deal done with a client, gray areas can be a significant headache for you. For example, if you were to say, “We will present you with a quality candidate” then you may have just created a gray zone for your deal. We understand that you’re trying to do it to sell the client; however, it can cause several problems. 
Final Thoughts 
A contract is one of the best tools that you have available to prevent client-related problems. Selling and marketing should be done long before sending the contract and not in the contract.  
Key Takeaways 
● Recruiters, sometimes, to sell a client, will say things that will paint them into a corner.
● Suggestive or qualifying words can create an uphill battle for you when you have to collect 
● Recruiters can save themselves a lot of anguish and a lot of problems if they avoid these words and phrases
● Being straightforward and using cut and dried language in your contracts is the best practice
