Independent Contractor Agreement

This contract is for when you as the company hire a freelancer to be your virtual assistant, an editor to edit photos, a copywriter to write your emails, a graphic designer to make designs, another team member, etc. (basically anyone who is a clone of you in some fashion and works remotely.). This is only for people that you hire as 1099 contractors and pay usually a flat fee per week/month and do not pay any workers benefits. This will work for any type of business and is drafted from the perspective of the company hiring the contractor.

Note: This contract includes a general confidentiality clause. If you would like the contractor to sign a full-length Non-Disclosure Agreement in addition to this contract, you will need to purchase a separate NDA here.

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.


"It’s such a relief to know I’m covered when it comes to contracts! Paige knows firsthand what it's like to be a small business owner and has tailored her contracts to cover EVERYTHING you could possibly need! The investment was a “no brainer” for me and Paige is forever my go-to girl for contracts!"
