Over the years, many types of contracts have been developed to govern the relationship between workers and employers. All these contracts have been created to provide flexibility for the parties involved. Additionally, the primary function of an agreement is to provide a legal framework for all the parties involved.

One such type of contract is the independent contractor agreement. With the rise of remote work and freelancing, the use of independent contractors has sharply increased within the United States of America.


An independent contractor agreement is a type of contract that defines the terms of an agreement between an organization and a freelancer. Within this document, all requirements between the employer and the employee are stipulated. Typically, an independent contractor agreement can be referred to as a freelance agreement or consulting contract.

Features of an Independent Contractor Agreement

This type of contract has many features. These features include fields and terms of the agreement. Some of the features are described below.

  • All information about the contractor and the company hiring them is included in the agreement. Such information includes names, contact information, and addresses of the parties.
  • The contract contains the fields for the two parties to sign either digitally or physically.
  • The validity time of the agreement is specified in the document. If the project has deadlines for the delivery of milestones, this information is usually written.
  • Within this document, details of the type of work are stipulated. Likewise, the expectation for each party is clearly stated.
  • The date when the contract began must be stated.
  • An independent contractor agreement must contain the amount of money the contractor will be paid when the contract ends or when milestones are completed. The type of compensation could be hourly or fixed.
  • To include a bit of flexibility, the parties may decide to include a choice to terminate the contract before the date it expires.
  • Where applicable, a non-disclosure agreement must be signed between the company and freelancer. This document is a separate document that is signed by the parties. However, reference must be made to it within the main agreement.
  • Other laws that are specific to a state or county are included in the document.
