The contract employee agreement is designed to help you draft a custom agreement that reflects your needs and situation. It includes all the essential elements of a contract employee agreement, including a clear specification of the contract relationship.
A contract job is generally considered to be any position that is aligned with an organization through an agency. Many of the more popular contract agencies (for example, Adecco and Aerotek) will interview and review the legitimacy of the candidate and assign him to roles for other organizations that are hiring. Contracted workers are aware that their position is not permanent, initially.
If your worker is classified as an "employee," rather than a "contract employee," you will be held liable for extra taxes, recordkeeping, and safety requirements. A contract can prevent this from happening by showing the validity of the contract employee relationship.
As a company person, you need to make sure that the agreement reflects the relationship between your business and the contract employee. It is important that all the terms are in good relation with both the parties.
