IN our experince, we have only had one "contract" from an employer, which was really just an explanation of job description, reimbursement, and rules. And, after we were at this job, the rules changed, as did the job description, but we stayed anyway. We have written our own "letter of understanding" where we reiterated our final negotiations with the employer. We had phone and email contacts before, and we sent the letter via email as part of our acceptance/confirmation. There really isn't any standard "fill-in-the-blank" contract that we are aware of.

Evey job will change once you get there - some a little, some a lot. Its alway best to try and work things out. We don't know of any way to make a binding workamping contracts, and we've talked to lots of workampers in the last three years. Written agreements are good not because they are binding, but because it is just one step closer to a better understanding between worker and employer.

And, really, all our letter of intent and the job description from the employer did was give us an guilt-free out . We can't force the employer to do anything, agreement or not.

phishvoy said it best. It really doesn't matter if you get it in writing or not, things change. Our 1st workamping experience was a complete mess. We had everything in writing but when we got there DH, who was to be evening security, got stuck with EVERY night. After a month of no relief although we talked to the husband/wife managers at lenght about this, we said enough is enough and left. He had no down time and they didn't seem to be concerned so we cut out of there. Other places were better. Don't mind some changes, always going to happen and that is understandable but if managers aren't willing to give alittle, you just have to decided for yourself if it is worth it.
