But without a fully executed independent contractor agreement, what you agreed on via phone, email, or text can be lost in translation (or even forgotten). This can lead to misunderstandings and unfortunate surprises (i.e., failure to deliver services or problems that arise during the working relationship). Plus, it is not enforceable.
This independent contractor agreement checklist equips you with the knowledge to evaluate your existing legal document or create your own.
There are many essential components of an independent contractor agreement. Most people know to include a Scope of Work (SOW) and payment terms, but there’s much more than that.
Given the importance of having a well-written independent contractor agreement, we created this checklist to help make it easy to evaluate your existing documents or create new ones.
Kick off your working relationship with your independent contractor properly, and you’ll save yourself from future headaches.
Please contact your employment attorney for additional insight.
