Specimen Independent Contractor’s Agreement


The SFA would remind companies to use an Independent Contractor’s Agreement, i.e. an agreement for companies to use to set down the terms and conditions on which they retain the services of independent contractors.  It includes specific clauses on such issues as liability for tax affairs, performance, vehicle provision, indemnity, obligations, assignment, payment and termination. 

A copy of the sample agreement can be downloaded by clicking here.
