What is an Independent Contractor?


An independent contractor is a person or business that provides goods or services, but unlike employees, independent contractors do not work regularly for an employer. Independent contractors work on an as needed basis. 


Why You Need an Independent Contractor Agreement


An independent contractor is not an employee, but may have access to confidential and valuable business information. An independent contract agreement protects your business by limiting the independent contractor's ability to:


  1. disclosure your confidential information;
  2. subvert your business relationship with third parties;
  3. return confidential information after work is completed; 
  4. and more. 


Additionally, an independent contractor agreement clarifies the business relationship by detailing:


  1. contractor is not employee;
  2. you are not responsible for contractor's tax withholdings;
  3. you are not liable for the acts and/or omissions of the contractor;
  4. and more.
