A Kansas independent contractor agreement is a legally binding contract between an independent contractor and the entity (person, business, etc.) that hired them. Both parties will negotiate terms for the agreement, adding provisions that protect themselves and their business interests. The main objective is to establish the type of service(s) to be performed by the contractor, the length of time the service(s) will take to complete, and the type of compensation to be awarded to the contractor for said services. In addition, a contractor agreement might touch on the subjects of taxes (contractor responsibility), workers’ compensation (contractor responsibility), termination (for either party), and non-disclosure (hiring entity protecting their confidential information).
