I need to clarify...

I thought this was just a job description?

I mis-wrote and left out words when I wrote, "this is contract." The job description looks like it is *for* a contract and not that it *is* a contract.

I may not have been clear that I was discussing the possible consequences if this requirement was incorporated into a written agreement. I was not suggesting that responding to the job would be any sort agreement. When there is a written agreement, even for regular employment, it is a contract with legal rights and responsibilities. If the final written employment agreement, either for a set term (temporary) or until terminated by one of the parties (regular), includes the vague requirement, then the requirement can have legal consequences for the employee.

Generally, agency employment contracts contain the job description used to solicit employees. I have seen some contracts that contain a phrase that references the job description as part of the contract. This requirement and any requirements in job descriptions that seem to place legal liability on employees are something to watch out for in the final written agreement.
