A South Carolina independent contractor agreement allows a self-employed individual (the “contractor”) and a client to outline the details of their working relationship and the job for which the contractor was hired. Completing the agreement provides both parties assurance that the other will uphold their end of the arrangement. The contractor will be guaranteed a price for their work, and the client will have signed proof that the job will be accomplished by a certain date.
By entering into an independent contractor agreement, both parties acknowledge the contractor’s status as a freelance worker, which will ensure the client is not liable for the contractor’s employment taxes or other benefits normally provided to employees.
