A Missouri subcontractor agreement outlines the professional arrangement between a subcontractor and the general contractor that has hired them to contribute their services to a project. The relationship between the parties is defined in the contract, which states that the subcontractor is independent and is responsible for a number of obligations that an employer would otherwise take care of (e.g., business permits, licenses, liability insurance).
The subcontractor also retains the right as an independent contractor to perform the services using their own methods and practices, so long as the final result complies with the general contractor’s and client’s wishes. The contractor and subcontract can use the contract to agree on the amount of compensation, completion date, and who is responsible for labor, materials, equipment, and the like.
