One of the essential aspects of risk management in master service contracts is the concept of compensation. Through indemnity clauses, these contracts require the supplier to release the other parties involved from claims, damages, losses and expenses that other parties may suffer as a result of the contractor`s activity on a construction site. Compensation means compensating an individual or organization for damages, losses or damages incurred. A compensation clause generally requires the service provider to compensate the customer (i.e. compensation) when the client is prosecuted for the service provider`s misconduct. While a compensation clause can help the client pass the risk on to the service provider, it only works in practice if the service provider is able to meet its compensation obligations. In other words, the service provider must have the money to compensate the customer. That`s where insurance comes in. By requiring the provider to carry certain insurance policies with certain minimum limits, the customer can ensure that he can seek redress from the service provider if the customer is sued because of an error by the service provider.

As a contractor, you are probably not a stranger in contracts. If you are part of a franchise group or direct repair network, you have a contract with the franchisor or repair network administrator. This contract covers many aspects of your relationship with the other party, including the agreed volume of work or your benefits and compensation structure. The contract would also describe different specifications or requirements that you must fulfill as a contractor.
