What’s in a Contractor Agreement?
If your business engages contractors, it’s a good idea to have a Contractor Agreement in place with each contractor you engage. This sets clear expectations about the scope and standard of services to be provided, fees and payment, confidentiality, IP ownership and termination processes.

A Contractor Agreement is a contract that sets out the terms and conditions between a business and a contractor to provide services.
Regardless of whether you’re engaging a contractor or not, it’s always best practice to formalise an arrangement in writing to ensure you’re protected and understand core terms of an arrangement.

Most of the time, even if you download a free template, it still comes with a disclaimer to seek professional advice. This is because there are certain risks associated with hiring a contractor that are specific to your particular business, and won’t be covered in a template.
Having a lawyer help you draft a legally sound Contractor Agreement will give you clarity around your engagement, and will also relieve you from the stresses associated with the legal technicalities of hiring contractors.

If your business engages contractors, it’s a good idea to sign each of them up to a Contractor Agreement. Or if you’re a contractor providing services, you want to make sure the terms of your engagement are in writing.
For both parties, a Contractor Agreement will ensure you’re both on the same page regarding the scope and standard of services to be provided, fees & payment, confidentiality and IP ownership.
