The Independent Contractor Agreement: Using it at the early formation stage

Note: This Workshop was held on October 8, 2012 at  Eastside Incubator at their workspace in Redmond.

We worked through a form Independent Contractor Agreement that you can download here.  Deniz Kiral’s slide deck on the the tax rules that govern whether a worker is an independent contractor or an employee can be downloaded here.

Most startups or pre-startup founders hire independent contractors at one time or another.   The independent contractor agreement is necessary to protect the company’s ownership of software or other contractor work product.  It also governs other important matters such as specification of deliverables, contractor warranties and allocation of risk.
