DRAFTING INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR AGREEMENTS, 1 CLE hour
 

In every industry, employers are increasingly relying on independent contractors over traditional full-time employees to grow their businesses.  Contactors give employers substantial flexibility – they are able to tap certain specialized skills without the risk of a full-time hire. They are able to structure performance based compensation arrangements without the financial risk of guaranteed salaries or fringe benefits. They are also able to make quick changes to the composition of their workforce if a contractor or initiative does not work out.  However, the risk is if the independent contractor relationship is not properly documented, the employer has unlimited liability for contactor activity and substantial tax liability on compensation paid to the contractor.  This program will provide you with a practical guide to drafting independent contractor agreements, including the term of an agreement, compensation, major tax issues, reporting and the limitation of liability.

Drafting independent contractor agreements 
How contractor agreements differ from employment agreements
Term of agreements – fixed term and tied to attaining performance benchmarks
Compensation – fixed and performance-based
Liability issues – limiting employer liability for certain forms of contractor conduct
Contractor training and ongoing reporting back to employer
Tax traps – factors that may trigger employer liability for FICA
