When an independent contractor wants to enter into a relationship with a recipient of services, he can use this contract. The contract may also be used by the recipient of the services to hire an independent contractor.
The document indicates whether the recipient is an individual or a company, as well as the addresses and contact details of the parties. The key features of the parties' agreement and fee information must also be stated in the document.
There will also be general contract provisions included, which cover the state location for any disputes, as well as other standard terms.
A completed document should be printed and signed by both parties. We recommend keeping copies in case any future disputes arise.
In the US, both Federal and specific state laws govern Independent Contractors. Federal laws may restrict what services can be contracted for (for example, no one may not contract for anything illegal), but individual state laws will generally govern the interpretation of the contract in case of a dispute.
