The problem with oral chords is that they are difficult to prove. If there were to be a dispute, a court would have to hear evidence and decide which version of the truth should be accepted. In the event of a written agreement, courts are generally required to respect their terms, even if they do not agree with them. Many SLAs follow the specifications of the Information Technology Infrastructure Library when applied to IT services. Each SLA management strategy takes into account two well-differentiated phases: contract negotiation and real-time execution monitoring. Therefore, the SLA administration includes the definition of the SLA contract: the basic scheme with the QoS parameters; THE AES negotiations; SLA surveillance; detection of ALS lesions and the application of ALS, as directed. A product service contract, also known as an extended warranty, is a type of service contract that resembles a basic or restricted warranty, only this coverage involves additional costs, but not a basic guarantee. Some of these service contracts are sold separately from the product and offer free protection for the item for a longer period than the basic warranty or for more services than the basic warranty, while others are included in the cost of a product and indicate the repair costs when the item needs to be repaired. When repair costs are set, they are often more advantageous than the fees charged by a repairer who works outside a service contract. A Service Level Contract (SLA) is an obligation between a service provider and a customer. Specific aspects of the service – quality, availability, responsibilities – are agreed between the service provider and the service user. [1] The most common component of ALS is that services are provided to the client in accordance with the contract. For example, internet service providers and telecommunications companies will generally include service level agreements under the terms of their contracts with customers to define service levels of service level sold in plain language.

In this case, ALS generally has a medium-time technical definition between errors (MTBF), average repair time or average recovery time (MTTR); Identifying the party responsible for reporting errors or paying royalties; Responsibility for different data rates throughput; Jitter; or similar measurable details. If you offer additional services that are not included in your base fee, you can not only list them for the customer reference in the contract, but also help set a limit to the work you have done. For example, a child care provider may list the cost of diapers or baby support when a parent fails to provide this assistance to their own child. The parties to the service contract are the customer and the service provider. The customer is the person or company that seeks the service, while the service provider is the person or company that performs the service. Service providers can sometimes be identified as “individual contractors,” “freelancers” or “consultants.” The main point is to create a new level for the grid, cloud or SOA middleware, capable of creating a trading mechanism between service providers and consumers. For example, the EU-funded Framework SLA@SOI 7 research project[12]explores aspects of multi-level, multi-supplier slas within service-based infrastructure and cloud computing, while another EU-funded project, VISION Cloud[13], has delivered results in terms of content-based ALS. Service level agreements can contain many service performance metrics with corresponding service level targets.

A common case in IT services management is a call center or service desk. Among the measures agreed in these cases is: the capacity/Independent contractor clause repeats that the service provider is hired as an independent contractor or consultant and not as a client`s collaborator. Note that the concealment of an employment relationship as an independent contractor in order to avoid benefits such as
