Massage Therapist Agreement

I have a commision based massage therapist and I want to put our agreement in writing. Just wondering if anyone has a copy of a massage therapist agreement that I can take a look at to make sure I'm not missing anything and that I have the right verbiage.

Re: Massage Therapist Agreement

I have found that they are a flighty bunch of people around my area. Good luck to you. We have done booth rent and commission. It was never in writing, however, the commission worked out much nicer. I was told by a state auditor that I should have been 1099 the whole time. Check with your state for regulations.

Re: Massage Therapist Agreement

I just added Massage Therapy to my salon and have a contract available for Independent Contractor's I will be paying a 60/40 split. If you are interested send me your email and I will forward it to you. Some things to keep in mind when hiring a massage therapist though is to 1st determine if you are hiring them as an Employee (which means you have to pay taxes on them and workers comp, unemployment etc. and have the ability to have control over everything) or if you are hiring them as an Independent Contractor which the IRS is cracking down on salons/spa's who are hiring Massage Therapists as Independent Contractors, but yet treating them as employees to get out of paying taxes on them, examples telling them what to where, how to perform the job, buying supplies for them etc.. you can't do these things if you hire them as IC's or aleast you are vnot supposed to. And yes you have to send them a 1099 if they make over $599. I have research this to death and spoken with my accountant, attorney, called the IRS etc.. let me know if I can help! Good Luck!

Re: Massage Therapist Agreement

Thanks for the info.
Esglow, right now my Massage Therapist is an Independant Contractor. SHe is on commission so yes, she will be getting a 1099 at the end of the year. I would love to take a look at your contract so I can get idea of what I would like to cover. I just want to get this in writing so that the salon doesnt ever get screwed over! My email is JGalusky@DDParadiseTanning.com. Thank you.

Re: Massage Therapist Agreement

you can also look up booth rental contracts or commission contracts for hair salons.
they can be a little hard to find but are out there. you can tweak them to your needs.

as mentioned the trick is to blend freedom of the independant worker with your needs.
basically you have to treat them as if they leased x amount of space from your building.
then it gets grey areas, you can't tell them what hours to work . or you can't tell them you want them to wear white shirts and black pants etc.. but you can have a dress code for the salon ie ..no shorts& tank tops i believe.. you just have to do a little reading to be sure. As I said it get into grey areas fast, and if you are wrong you owe the irs taxes on an employee.

Re: Massage Therapist Agreement

What is the average going rate to rent a massage therapist room. I actually do a 50/50 split and find that this works great for us.
