A person is hiring me as an independent contractor however they do not have a contract for doing so. I’m trying to put one together although I feel as though they should have one for hiring me. I have a contract on hand that I’ve used when working directly with clients. I’m almost tempted to use that because I feel this “web designer” hiring me doesn’t entirely understand what they’re doing. I want to treat her as a client. Any suggestions on contracts or additional contract templates I can take a look at?
If you are a freelance business person, why would you let a client dictate terms to you? The term “Independent Contractor” is just another way to say freelance to my way of thinking. If she has sent you project specs, send her a proposal. If she wants a long-term relationship, figure out what you want and tell her in a proposal. Sounds pretty simple.
