offnote is on a distinguished road

  Old  right to represent agreement

Hi Everybody,
I have quick question about "right to represent" one specific client agreement sent via email by recruitment agency. How binding is that when I send reply to such email with my acceptance? Also if it's legally binding how long does it last?
Is it only for particular position or for any position at that client?
thanks

Replying to an email is equally binding to signing a contract, just more difficult to enforce. The length depends on how the courts will interpret the contract. If they say it's written it's indefinite, otherwise it may be limited by state statues. As a professor of mine once said "If the agreement is more important than a piece of paper, use one."

thanks, so the enforcement is the tricky part then. Probably because email can be relatively easily altered or faked I guess.

The other aspect of this question would be does recruitment agencies have right to ask for exclusive representation for more then one project?

They have the right to ask for anything they please so long as it doesn't violate contract law.
