Independent Contractor Agreements
Independent Contractor Agreements – Independent contractors are typically hired with a particular expertise to do a job that the business cannot handle itself. The independent contractor relationship, like any other, should be documented so as to ensure clarity as to the nature of the services and fees and to protect the assets of the business.
Business owners must be aware of the differences between employees and contractors and the significant risk of tax liability associated with paying someone as a “contractor” when they are treated as an employee.
At DregerLawSM, we help business owners understand the difference between employees and contractors and to ensure the contractor relationship is documented to protect business assets.
