A New Jersey independent contractor agreement is used to formalize the agreed-upon terms of service and compensation between an independent contractor and their client. In addition to holding both parties accountable, the contract protects the client from certain liabilities by clarifying the contractor’s independent status. Independent contractors are responsible for ensuring that they and their subcontractors operate within State law, pay their income tax, and obtain necessary insurance coverage. The agreement must be signed by both parties to be considered valid.
