A New Hampshire independent contractor agreement relays the conditions under which a contractor is hired to work for a client. The document spells out the contractor’s obligations concerning the service being provided, the expected outcome, and the deadline for completion (unless the agreement is ongoing). It also includes financial provisions that address compensation, payment dates, and service-related expenses.
An independent contractor agreement helps avoid worker misclassification. It proves that the contractor is self-employed and, therefore, not entitled to employee benefits, nor should any portion of their income be withheld by the client for tax purposes.
