A contractor agreement represents a legally binding relationship between the two parties, outlining the exchange of services for payment. The temporary and specific nature of this arrangement is why an independent contractor agreement is imperative and should be designed to be beneficial to both parties. Aside from provisions regarding services and payment, a contractor agreement may include articles detailing expenses, taxes, indemnification, confidentiality, non-compete, etc.
