An Independent Contractor Agreement is an agreement between two parties, the independent contractor (often called just the "contractor") and the recipient of services (often called just the "recipient"). In this document, the parties are generally forming a relationship so that the contractor can perform one specific task.

These relationships are very different than employment relationships - and in fact, there are several legal requirements for ensuring a contracting relationship is not mistaken for an employment one. These include things such as the recipient's level of control over the contractor, location restrictions, and other items which may determine whether the contracting relationship looks more like employment.

This agreement can be used for any type of contracting services, whether big or small. Within these agreements, the contractor and recipient outline the bounds of their contractual relationship.

Applicable law
