A Wisconsin independent contractor agreement is used by freelancers and their clients to establish the terms and conditions of an upcoming work project. The terms of the agreement should be agreed to and signed by both parties before any work has begun.
A freelancer is a nonemployee worker that is generally hired to handle short-term projects that do not require permanent employment; some examples include photographers, mechanics, building contractors, etc. The execution of an independent contractor agreement helps protect the freelancer and their client from any misunderstandings regarding the required services, payment terms, and liability.
