Independent Contractor Agreement or Contract
Do you want to save money in legal fees?
If you're planning on contracting with a freelancer to work on a project, you need a written contract to protect your interests. But as you know, contract language is confusing and lawyers bill by the hour.
First, just to be sure we are talking the same language, a Freelance Agreement is an arrangement in which a company or business contracts with another person to perform a specific task or service. The independent professional or freelancer is not your employee and does not receive wages or benefits. He or she is paid according to an agreed-upon arrangement. Individuals entering into contractual arrangements need clearly defined terms in order to avoid unpleasant surprises in mid - project.
First, let me say up front that there is no substitute for a good lawyer or a professional involved in paralegal studies if you're entering into anything but the simplest of agreements.
However, you can save money by minimizing the billable hours that your lawyer will spend on your agreement if you do the preliminary work yourself. It's not as difficult as you think, especially if you use this freelance agreement document as your guide.
This package contains THREE sample contracts. All have been approved by a contract lawyer, so you can be assured that they are based on solid principles of contract law. However, they are not meant to be a substitute for legal advice. After completing the document to your satisfaction, be sure to take it to your own lawyer for review before using.
These documents will be helpful to anyone entering into a contractual arrangement with a consultant or independent professional. All are well developed documents. They are not intended for use in simple instances where you engage someone's services to type a letter, for example.
The files in the Independent Contractor package are available in a zip file containg MS Word documents. Other file formats can be discussed if you don't have software that can open MS Word.
This document, like all of my products, comes with a lifetime money-back guarantee if you are not satisfied.
