Avoid the pitfalls of works and service contracts
In order to implement works and service contracts in accordance with current law, the client and the contractor must be familiar with and follow the statutory provisions. If they fail to do so, both sides may be faced with severe penalties. With clearly defined processes and 100 internal and external audits per year, FERCHAU collaborates with its customers to support them with both types of contracts. We guarantee individual and personal support for you with over 100 branches. Your local specialists will help you design, manage and implement your works and service contracts in accordance with the law and make sure that all process steps are followed. We give you our word – as well as the certified confirmation by DEKRA, an independent inspection institute.
What pitfalls are there if works contracts and service contracts are improperly executed?
An inadequate definition of successful performance or the performance specification
Incorrect handling of the selection processes
The selection of the executor is the sole responsibility of the contractor in the contract for work or services. The client may not influence the selection.
Incorrect handling of the authority to issue instructions
The authority to issue instructions lies solely with the contractor in the works or service contract. The client may not issue direct instructions to the executors.
Lack of organisational separation
Giving executors assignments beyond the agreed trades. Integration into the client’s workflows is not permissible. The planning freedom lies exclusively with the contractor.
Consequences for violations
If the basic rules for works and service contracts are violated, the legislator may object to covert temporary employment, with the following consequences
Fines of up to EUR 30,000
Entry into the commercial center register
Contingent liability for the wage tax
The employee is entitled to indefinite employment by the client
