WHAT IS AN INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR AGREEMENT?

Basically, a DIY Independent Contractor Agreement is a contract you send to the person (freelancer, independent contractor, etc.) you’re hiring or working with to do a job for you in your business. They’re NOT your employee — this is a person you only want to hire as an independent contractor. Essentially this means they work at their own pace, on their own hours, and at a location of their choosing.

DO I NEED AN INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR AGREEMENT?

Yes! An Independent Contractor Agreement makes it super clear…

  • What your contractor gets paid, why & when
  • What counts as “work” they get paid for
  • That you can end your relationship at pretty much any time!
  • & so much more!

IS 1099 THE SAME AS AN INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR?

You bet! A 1099 worker is indeed an independent contractor. This term comes from the IRS form 1099-MISC, used in the U.S. to report payments to folks who aren’t your regular employees but those you hire for specific tasks or projects. They’re the go-getters who manage their own hours, choose where they want to work, and bring that special something to your business without being on the regular payroll like W-2 employees.
