A South Carolina Independent Contractor Agreement is a contract between a client who is paying for the services and an independent contractor who is providing them. As opposed to an employer-employee relationship, in which the payer of the work has a say in the method, means, and manner in which the services are provided, a contract of this nature enables the contractor to execute as they deem fit as long as the final result is what the client and contractor agreed upon. This agreement also outlines the due date of the services, the monetary compensation, and the independent status of the contractor. A contract of this variety helps delineate the relationship between the two parties, avoiding confusion in defining the responsibilities of both.
