Hi All,
I need a Appointment letter or Employment contract format for recruiting a candidate on following conditions.
My company is a manufacturing company. We sell our products through dealers/distributors or our marketing executives directly sell them to clients.
Now we have one distributor in Ahmedabad and we've planned to penetrate Ahmedabad market through that distributor as he well aware of local marketing conditions.
Now we have agreed to appoint a person for Marketing who will work for achieving the aims of both of us (our company & distributor). And hence, we've decided to pay him 50-50 salary. That means 50% of his salary would be paid by my company and 50% would be paid by distributor.
Now I'm not aware of employment contract or appointment letter for such kind of employee.
Hence, request you to provide me with the proper appointment letter format sufficing the above contract.
Kind regards,

Sharing of salary in the ratio of 50-50 for one employee is your agreement with your dealer. I wish to know who will be the employer of that person. Both of you or only you or your dealer. If both, then you will issue appointment letter and your dealer will also issue appointment letter separately mentioning their share of salary. Got the point. And in that event, both the employers' terms and condition of appointment will apply. If only you will appoint him, then issue him appointment letter as per your company policy and recover salary of his share from the dealer.
It is suggested you appoint the person and govern his services and appoint your dealer as his reporting-head.

Dear Harshvardhan,
You must be aware as a HR person that dual employment is not allowed in India. Legality apart, what if, you allow this employee to take dual employment and others also start taking advantage of the same !!
Your way out is, you issue that person an appointment letter from your company and have a separate agreement with your distributor for outsourcing your staff for a fixed fee ( which will take care of your 50%).

First of all decide to whom the employee will report to and apart from his salary, who will bear the other cost i.e. the liability of the employee during his tenure with employment.
It is suggested that the employee should be hired on your payroll so that he can penetrate the market and can be an asset to your company. Distributor may change, but to get strong hold of the market it is the employee who creates the reputation of the company and product.
With regards to salary, you can raise a debit note for the salary of the said employee and deduct the same from the distributors outstanding. W.R.T. to appointment letter it is the normal one with all terms and conditions of the employment, which is available on CITEHR with find information tab. If you still have problem is assessing the format, do write we will guide you.
