Are you ready to outsource but don’t want to open yourself up to a ton of liability? Adding team members to your business is one of the best ways to scale (and prevent burnout)...but it can also be really risky without proper legal protection. What if your new team member(s) don’t complete the work you need? Or they share your company’s private information with competitors? Or you pay their fee only to hear radio silence?

In the whirlwind that is interviewing and hiring, the last thing you have time to do is draft up a legally legit contract that protects you and your new hire(s) from sticky situations. Enter the TLP Independent Contractor Agreement- outsource with confidence knowing that your business is protected!

This contract covers situations like

   - Who owns the copyrights to the work created,
   - How your company plans to pay the contractor and the contractor’s responsibility to send invoices,
   - No taxes being withheld and tax responsibility solely on the contractor,
   - Work is on a project by project basis — no guaranteed hours or projects,
   - Keeping all your company’s trade secrets, workflows, systems, and client information confidential,
   - Non-solicitation of your clients,
   - And so much more!

This contract template will work for any type of business and is drafted from the perspective of the company hiring the contractor.

DISCLAIMER: By purchasing a template contract and/or document from The Legal Paige, LLC, you are not given access to Paige and no attorney-client relationship is created.

All template documents are drafted using general U.S. contract principles and are not state-specific. Our products are easy-to-use and have highlighted, editable sections with commentary on what to amend according to your business practices and local state laws. You may modify the document on your own or find an attorney in your state to help you.

Some template documents are available in Canada, have been reviewed by a Canadian lawyer, and are drafted using general Canadian common law contract principles (not for use in Quebec due to civil law jurisdiction). Thus, if you purchase a Canadian template all language in the document will be applicable to your business operating in Canada. If you need assistance modifying the document, please find lawyer in your territory/province to help you.

Very easy to use

This contract fulfilled all my needs! Once you get it customized to your business it’s very easy to use.

Peyton F.
Now I feel so protected!

It was so easy to edit and had everything I needed to be protected. My old agreement was some random free one online, and I knew it was a mess. Now I feel so protected and have my ISH together!

Lily Noordyk
Perfect for Independent Contractors!

This agreement was so easy to use and absolutely stress free to make sure that both us and our independent contractor are protected!

Heather Daenitz
Exactly what I was looking for

I finally hired a new assistant and knew I needed a formal Agreement in place to protect both of us. This was exactly what I was looking for and included some language and info that I didn't consider. It's well worth the investment to protect you and your contactors!

Cindy Thurk
Just what I needed!

I heard about TLP from my business coach and I have heard on so many podcasts having a legit contract for your clients and your team is SO important. Getting the Independent Contractor agreement has been so helpful and it outlines items I never even considered. It protects me as the owner and makes me legit to the team. I am so thankful to have the help and resources, highly recommend.
