BUS 128 Independent Contractor Agreement Contract Analysis Contract Analysis (45 points)
(I attached the documents needed)
Each student is to produce a 4 paragraph paper analyzing a contract. In advance of the paper send, for review by the instructor, a copy of a contract used in everyday life, e.g., insurance, credit card, rental agreement, gym membership, etc. Send this by email. Be creative. It can be a blank contract. Several websites offer free form contracts. There are also contracts in Canvas under Contracts Module. The copy of the contract must be turned in with the paper unless you are using one that is in Canvas. In that case, merely reference the title of the contract in your report. A URL is not a substitute. It will count as if no contract was attached.
Please make sure any confidential data has been deleted or blacked out. A four paragraph typed analysis of the contract must be submitted which discusses any three legal concepts in the contract that were covered in the text. The student is to submit an analysis of legal concepts and not a filled-in contract.
The first paragraph is to be a summary of the entire contract. Please note that I said a summary which means an overview of the contract and not a detailed description. Your summary paragraph should not be much longer than each of the 3 other paragraphs. Im looking for an overview of the contract and not what each section is about.
The other three paragraphs are to be used to discuss and analyze three different clauses in the contract (one per paragraph) and how they relate to the textbook and other course material. Be sure and indicate which paragraph in the contract you are discussing, e.g., #1 of the contract talks about x, y, and z.
I am looking for an analysis of how each clause relates to the class material. Little or no analysis will result in point deductions. Summarizing the clause is not an analysis. Show me that you understand how this clause functions in the real world. I want to see that you understand the legal consequences of each clause you are discussing and not just paraphrasing the contract wording. Hypothetical examples are an easy way of showing this.
You must also refer by page or chapter to the part(s) of the text you are using. It is not sufficient to say according to the text or something similar. Additionally, do not reference other textbooks. I dont have access to them so I cant verify the reference. If you dont have a text, there is one on reserve in the library. I dont mind if you use the 7th edition but say so as I waste time looking through all texts to see which one a student used. That will bring about a point(s) deduction.
There is an example of an analysis clause written by a student in the Contracts Module.
What Not To Put in Your Contract Report
Discussing the formation of a contract is not acceptable. In other words, Express/Implied Contracts, Offer; Acceptance; Consideration; Bilateral; etc., are not clauses in most contracts. Do Not Talk About Offer, Acceptance and Consideration.
Dont talk about an express contract. If you are unsure, then ask me via email. Most contracts dont say, This is an express contract. If your contract is in writing ITS AN EXPRESS CONTRACT! It is probably a bilateral contract as well. You will receive no extra points if you state this. If you use any of these concepts as the legal concept in your analysis and, the legal concept isnt the subject of that clause, you will receive no points for that clause. Each clause is worth 12 points so thats a huge loss of points. PLEASE PAY ATTENTION TO THIS. DO NOT TALK ABOUT CONTRACT FORMATION OR THE TYPE OF CONTRACT. IF YOU ARE WRONG, THERE WILL BE A POINT DEDUCTION AND THERE IS NOTHING TO BE GAINED BY INCLUDING IT.
If you are using a rental or lease agreement for real property, at least one clause must be from outside of the chapter titled Landlord and Tenant. If all three of your clauses rely on that chapter, there will be an automatic 11 point deduction. Please email me if you are unsure of your clauses. Many students using rental agreements use the Rent and Term of the Lease clauses for their analysis. These are fine but generally there isnt much to analyze so the result is a shallow analysis and minimal points.
Please remember, agreements for real property or services do not follow the UCC. So, if using an agreement for real property or services, do not discuss any of those UCC chapters .
Students in online classes often miss the easiest clause to talk about ADR or Arbitration as it doesnt have extensive coverage in the text. However, it is critical in the business world. Additionally, most contracts have boiler plate clauses towards the end. These clauses are the easiest to use as the text generally has good information on them as well as examples. If you are using an example from the text, be sure to reference that. INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR AGREEMENT
This Agreement is entered into as of the [
] day of [
], 200[ ], between [company
name] (the Company) and [service providers name] (the Contractor).

interest in the same to the Company. Any and all inventions, discoveries, developments
and innovations conceived by the Contractor prior to the term of this Agreement and utilized
by [him or her] in rendering duties to the Company are hereby licensed to the Company for
use in its operations and for an infinite duration. This license is non-exclusive, and may be
assigned without the Contractors prior written approval by the Company to a wholly-owned
subsidiary of the Company.
6. Confidentiality. The Contractor acknowledges that during the engagement [he or she] will
have access to and become acquainted with various trade secrets, inventions, innovations,
processes, information, records and specifications owned or licensed by the Company
and/or used by the Company in connection with the operation of its business including,
without limitation, the Companys business and product processes, methods, customer lists,
accounts and procedures. The Contractor agrees that [he or she] will not disclose any of
the aforesaid, directly or indirectly, or use any of them in any manner, either during the term
of this Agreement or at any time thereafter, except as required in the course of this
engagement with the Company. All files, records, documents, blueprints, specifications,
information, letters, notes, media lists, original artwork/creative, notebooks, and similar items
relating to the business of the Company, whether prepared by the Contractor or otherwise
coming into [his or her] possession, shall remain the exclusive property of the Company.
The Contractor shall not retain any copies of the foregoing without the Companys prior
written permission. Upon the expiration or earlier termination of this Agreement, or

Company all such files, records, documents, specifications, information, and other items in
[his or her] possession or under [his or her] control. The Contractor further agrees that [he
or she] will not disclose [his or her] retention as an independent contractor or the terms of

all times preserve the confidential nature of [his or her] relationship to the Company and of

enter into this Agreement, and that this engagement does not violate the terms of any
agreement between the Contractor and any third party. Further, the Contractor, in rendering

innovation, or trade secret in which [he or she] does not have a proprietary interest. During

time, energy and abilities to the performance of [his or her] duties hereunder as is necessary
to perform the required duties in a timely and productive manner. The Contractor is

year of such employment or engagement.
8. Right to Injunction. The parties hereto acknowledge that the services to be rendered by the
Contractor under this Agreement and the rights and privileges granted to the Company
under the Agreement are of a special, unique, unusual, and extraordinary character which
gives them a peculiar value, the loss of which cannot be reasonably or adequately
compensated by damages in any action at law, and the breach by the Contractor of any of
the provisions of this Agreement will cause the Company irreparable injury and damage.
The Contractor expressly agrees that the Company shall be entitled to injunctive and other
equitable relief in the event of, or to prevent, a breach of any provision of this Agreement by
the Contractor. Resort to such equitable relief, however, shall not be construed to be a
waiver of any other rights or remedies that the Company may have for damages or
otherwise. The various rights and remedies of the Company under this Agreement or
otherwise shall be construed to be cumulative, and no one of the them shall be exclusive of
any other or of any right or remedy allowed by law.

Company into or with any other entity.

materially breaches provisions of this Agreement, the Company at any time may terminate
the engagement of the Contractor immediately and without prior written notice to the
