A Maine independent contractor agreement is a legally binding arrangement between a person/business/entity and a hired independent contractor. This arrangement states that the contractor is not an employee of the entity but is hired for a single purpose/job/task (providing a service) in exchange for compensation. An independent contractor agreement remains in effect until the service is complete or one of the parties terminates the arrangement (must be for a reasonable cause). This type of agreement should be negotiated by both parties in an attempt to keep it mutually beneficial. However, the contractor typically ends up being responsible for taxes, benefits, unemployment and workers’ compensation, insurance, and the like.
