An Indiana subcontractor agreement is a contract between a contractor and a subcontractor by which the subcontractor is hired to complete a portion of a larger project. The initial contractor (often called the “general contractor”) will hold a contract with the client and be responsible for seeing that the work is carried out, while the subcontractor will only be liable to the contractor. Subcontractors may only be hired if the independent contractor agreement with the client allows it.
By executing an agreement, the contractor and subcontractor both accept the subcontractor’s responsibilities, financial compensation, and contract duration. Furthermore, the parties can sign off on provisions that cover liability insurance requirements, dispute resolution, and the indemnification of the contractor and their client.
