Freelancers, consultants, self-employed workers & businesses that hire independent contractors

• With the rise of the gig economy, independent contractor arrangements are more common than ever before—recent figures place the number as high as 15 million people working as ICs.
• This book provides ready-to-use contracts for consultants and the businesses that hire them, including specialized versions for software consulting, construction, sales, household services, and gig economy jobs.
• The agreements are designed to prove to the IRS and other government agencies that the hired worker is truly an independent contractor and not an employee. Having this documentation in place is essential—employers who misclassify employees as independent contractors can face stiff fines, back taxes, and lawsuits.
