Independent Contractor Agreement Template

$595.00

Growing your biz? Go you! It helps to have a hand along the way, so if you’re thinking of hiring a contractor, this template has you covered. Independent contractors are hired to help out with your biz, and can perform a range of tasks depending on what they specialise in. This Agreement includes terms and conditions as well as a Scope of Work, meaning you can outline exactly what you need from your contractor and make sure expectations are clear on both sides.

Who’s it for?

Our Independent Contractor Agreement template is for growing businesses that aren’t quite ready to hire a full-on employee, but still need a little help with biz-related tasks. If your circumstances are better suited to hiring an employee, check out our Employment Agreement instead. Or if you’re hiring someone to work *in* your business (rather than *on* your business) – meaning they’ll be performing client work rather than doing back-end tasks – you’ll need our Subcontractor Agreement template. Not sure what you need? Book in a chat with us!

 

What's included?

  • Your contractor’s obligations, both during and after their employment
  • What happens on termination
  • Confidentiality and intellectual property protection
  • Non-compete and non-solicit restraints
  • Scope of work to outline the specifics

 

Not For

This is NOT the right agreement if you are keen to hire someone as a full time or part time employee. Make sure you understand the difference between an independent contractor and an employee so you don’t land in hot water. This handy little tool from the ATO will help you decide whether your worker is an employee or a contractor for tax and super purposes. Thanks, ATO!

If you’re still unsure, please get in touch with a lawyer. Guess what? We know a few over here at Foundd Legal who are happy to assist!

Lastly, if you’re providing the services, we recommend our Services Agreement (which you can also use where you are the receiver of the services! How helpful is that?).

Disclaimer

A couple of quick things to make sure we’re on the same page:

First, purchasing our templates, utilising our free resources or having a chat with us as part of a consultation doesn’t create a lawyer-client relationship between you and Foundd Legal (sorry!). It also doesn’t constitute legal advice.

All templates adhere to Australian principles of contract law and are designed for those doing business in Australia (unless they specifically state that they are in accordance with New Zealand law, for businesses in New Zealand). Similar principles may apply in your jurisdiction, but we recommend that you consult with a qualified lawyer in your area prior to purchasing our templates.

While we do our best to minimise legalese (that’s complex lawyer-speak) within our contracts, there are certain things that require particular wording in order to best protect you and your business. Please don’t expect our contracts to be super simple - they’re as simple as they possibly can be, while still being comprehensive and putting your needs first (even the ones you didn’t know you had!). Of course, if you’re having trouble understanding something specific, you’re welcome to get in touch with any questions!

Feeling Legally Legit

These contracts are a total slice of heaven! I was unsure on how to go about hiring contractors for my business, when I cam across these templates and now I feel so legally legit and confident knowing my business is covered. Riz and the team at Foundd Legal have made this part of the legal process a walk in the park. Thanks team!
