A Maine independent contractor agreement is a document used to outline the terms and conditions of an arrangement between an individual/business entity (the client) and the person they have hired to perform a service for them (independent contractor). Some of the key provisions of the agreement include a list of services, payment information, due date, termination options, and expenses.
An independent contractor agreement also establishes the relationship between the parties, relaying that the contractor is self-employed. Because the independent contractor is not an employee, they are obligated to obtain the appropriate business licenses, permits, and certificates, maintain comprehensive liability insurance coverage, and they are within their rights to perform the services on their own schedule and in their own way.
