Independent contractors can be a powerful arm of your creative business, but they’re not employees, so things can get a little confusing. Keep it simple with bulletproof legal explanations and expectations for all parties that are easy to read and understand.
Bringing on an independent contractor has unique legal challenges, but this contract template is written to cover all of your bases. With provisions for payment, clear-cut service expectations, copyright ownership and confidentiality details, your contractor will know exactly what’s required. Plus, a bonus indemnification clause can protect you from any liability that the independent contractor may bring up.
