Any time you have someone performing services for or on behalf of your company it is very important to have a written agreement in place to formalize the terms of that relationship. This Independent Contractor Agreement Template goes through everything regarding your relationship with an Independent Contractor, including the term of the relationship, a description of the services the Independent Contractor will perform, who will own the work the Independent Contractor produces, and how confidential information will be treated during and after the term of the Agreement. This Agreement also specifies the Independent Contractor is not an employee and your company is not an employer. This language is key to the Agreement because as an employer you would potentially be responsible for certain employment related benefits such as healthcare and workers’ compensation, as well as the calculation of payroll taxes. That is why it is so important to make abundantly clear that the services you are contracting for are being provided by an Independent Contractor and not an employee.
