To assist members in drawing up a contract, our national body Professional Historians Australia has produced a Model Contract and Checklist for the sole use and benefit of Australia's various PHA members and their commissioning agents.
For information on the PHA Model Contract, PHA (SA) members should contact the Association via the contact details provided.
PHA has also negotiated special insurance rates for professional historians who are members of the various state professional historian associations; these cover Professional Indemnity and Public Liability Insurance. For more details please contact:
Another issue that affects the work of professional historians is copyright. The Australian Copyright Council has produced a useful guide for historians: Historians and copyright.
