A West Virginia independent contractor agreement Is used by freelancers and their clients to come to terms on the exchange of services for financial compensation. Other important information such as insurance responsibilities, expenses, and expected project completion date (if any) should also be included in the document. The agreement establishes that the contractor is not an employee of the client, meaning the freelancer determines how the work is completed, and the client is not responsible for paying employment taxes or employee benefits.
The independent contractor agreement should be executed before any work has begun to avoid confusion or disputes over the client-contractor business relationship.
