A standard independent contractor agreement between an independent contractor (a self-employed individual) and a client company for services. This precedent is intended for use when a company is retaining the services of an independent contractor as opposed to an employee. As a result, the text differs from that of an Employment Agreement. For more information on independent contractors see the Employment Law.
