In the Management Rights Industry, many building managers enter into Agreements with people who they consider to be independent contractors. Some of these “contractors” may attend to a number of the duties that are required of the Manager, pursuant to a Caretaking or Letting Agreement. However, it is important to be aware that even though the parties may consider themselves to be in a principal/independent contractor agreement, the relationship may, according to the law, be that of an employer and employee.

Unfortunately, in this day and age, it is almost necessary for an Onsite Manager or leasing consultant to complete a course in self-defence along with their registration. I began asking Onsite Managers if any have had scary encounters whilst at a tenant’s premises. Statistically speaking, 1 in 5 had some sort of scare.
