INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR AGREMENT TEMPLATE

FOR YOUR BUSINESS 

The Only Lawyer Approved Written Contract You MUST have if you are a Freelancer or a Client looking to hire a freelancer to do any kind of work for you. 

 

 

Hi my fellow bloggers and entrepreneurs! Maybe some of these sound familiar to you? 

 

  • You are a freelancer, virtual assistant or an independent contractor who just landed his or her first gig (how exciting!) but you have no idea whether you need a written contract? You know a written contract sounds very important but you find the "legal stuff" confusing, complicated, intimidating and maybe even boring!? 

 

  • You are the client who just hired a freelancer, virtual assistant or an independent contractor to help you with your business but now you are worried about how to make sure your "trade secrets" or "secret sauce" is protected and not shared with a competitor by the freelancer

 

  • As a freelancer, you want to make sure you are paid on time and can retain ownership rights to the intellectual property you create but how do you make sure ALL your financial and legal interests are fully protected?

  • As a client, you don't want to be sued for overtime pay, unemployment benefits, state and federal taxes, injuries and damages suffered by the freelancer and much more! so how do you make sure ALL your financial, business and legal interests are also protected

    If ANY of these are resonating with you  then both the freelancer and the client or company hiring the freelancer NEED this contract template!  

    What is an

    INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR AGREEMENT 

    and why you MUST have this template for your business? 

     
    It is a written contract that the client and the freelancer (also known as the independent contractor) use to safeguard their business and financial interests while protecting themselves legally!  

     

    It includes VERY important legal provisions such as:

    • Parties: Clearly defining the relationship between the parties (the client or company has hired the freelancer) 

    • Independent contractor status: Why the Freelancer is not an employee of the company / client for legal and tax purposes

    • Services: What kind of work / services will the Freelancer perform for the client

       

    • Term: When will the Freelancer start and complete the work (project timeline) 

       

    • Compensation: How and when the Freelancer will get paid! 

       

    • Confidentiality: How will the Freelancer protect client's confidentiality and intellectual property rights 

       

    • Governing Law: How and where you will resolve legal disputes

       

    • Termination: How can both parties terminate the contract without any penalty

       

    • Ownership of Intellectual property - who owns the rights to the intellectual property created by the Freelancer?

       

      This contract template includes both options where as a Freelancer, you get to keep ownership of the intellectual property you created or you can transfer all ownership rights to the client.

       

      ​+ much more! 

       

     Video testimonial by Keesha Johnson: "Don't waste time trying to figure out the legal documents on your own. Go ahead and purchase Amira's products, not just this independent contractor agreement but her other products as well. It was a very time consuming and frustrating experience for me before I purchased Amira's legal templates."

    WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW TO SEE WHAT SHE HAS TO SAY! 

    Hi there! I'm Amira Irfan and I'm the LAWYER + BLOGGER + BUSINESS COACH who created this legal template for your business.

     

    I've been practicing law for more than 8 years representing businesses and online entrepreneurs like you in a wide variety of legal disputes and transactions, and have been teaching business and legal skills and coaching online entrepreneurs for over 10 years now.

     

    As a business owner and lawyer myself, I understand how important it is to protect your online business, creation and hard work! 

     

    Therefore, I provide VERY affordable legal and business solutions that you can easily implement to fit your needs. 

    ​I graduated from the University of Connecticut School of Law in 2010, with Honors, in the top 10% of my law school class while serving as an Associate Editor for the Connecticut Journal of International Law. I’m licensed to practice law in Florida and New Jersey.  Unlike most unhappy lawyers out there, I love the law and still enjoy working full-time as a lawyer.

    So why do I love the law? Because before I became a lawyer, I was a TEACHER. I love teaching and simplifying complicated aspects of law into easy simple ways that you can understand.

     

    Even during law school, while most law students buried their heads into the "legalese", I was busy teaching new attorneys on how to manage client funds properly and maintain their trust accounts so they could learn how to avoid violating the legal rules of professional responsibility and ethics.

     

    I was then asked to publish my first Trust Account Manual on this topic as a guide for the Connecticut Statewide Grievance Committee - all this in just my second year of law school.

     

    I'm an experienced busy lawyer I'm not your typical "stuffy" lawyer who hides behind her computer all day so she could bill you 24/7 for every little thing! In fact, I'm the opposite - I love interacting with you, learning more about your problem and then providing easy AFFORDABLE and PERSONALIZED solutions that won't break your wallet! 

     

    I created this legal template to help you avoid lawsuits I typically see between clients and independent contractors! 

    What is included with your purchase:

    ​3 BONUSES WITH THE TEMPLATE! ($450 total value)

    You will receive 3 additional bonuses with the template to help you save more $$$ and time.

    DRAFTED BY A LAWYER

    Have the complete satisfaction and peace of mind knowing that this legal template is actually written by an experienced lawyer instead of relying on a free template that's deficient and fails to contain ALL the key legal provisions you need in the contract to protect yourself from lawsuits. 

    QUICKLY AND EASILY CUSTOMIZABLE! 

    As shown by the testimonials, there are only about 5 custom blank fields for you to complete in each template and clear instructions are included as part of the template. This means you can start using the template right away! I have simplified the entire process for you.

    Amira is an awesome and interesting person who is very professional and personable. She is not only an actual lawyer but also a blogger. So when it came time to seek help with the legal pages of my business, I went all out and bought her Legal Bundle templates for my blogs because I needed all three legal pages and it was the best deal. I couldn't be happier. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, THEMIt truly saved me hours upon hours of research and time trying to figure it out myself just to end up paying a lawyer for their time to look it over and make corrections.

    I honestly wasn’t expecting very much, maybe just some standard boilerplate text with a tip or two on customizing it. I was very happy to see that you had over achieved by providing automated forms where I could just fill in a few blanks and the template was so easy to customize and use. Much easier than I expected. The auto fill info the key elements was an unexpected but welcome surpriseI had started cobbling together something on my own but I was really dreading trusting in my ability to get it rightThe quality of your product greatly provided me peace of mind.

    Need help with legal templates? Amira from A Self Guru got you covered! Spend your time making money, not wondering if you are protected. Leave that to the professional! Unlike most lawyers, Amira does not charge an arm and a leg for her freelance contract template. She believes in empowering small business owners to protect themselves legally and sees you through the entire process. Her customer service is impeccable!. You can have the peace of mind knowing your legal documents were drafted by a REAL attorney. Drafting ANY legal document can be nightmare if you don't know what you are doing. I found this out the hard way, not just with my freelance contract but with my terms and conditions, privacy policy and disclaimer. What I've learned throughout the process is that you really need a lawyer to help make sure you are legally protected. When I came across Amira, I knew she was EXACTLY what I needed. I really do LOVE Amira's contracts and legal documents. This contract template covers EVERYTHING! It's priced VERY reasonably and is so easily customizable!

    “ Now, let's talk contracts. Hiring a VA (virtual assistant) or freelancer to help you maintain and grow your business and blog is a smart move. Especially if you are concerned with saving your time and money. Running a business requires help. You may be a solopreneur like me, but there's no need to do it all on your own.

    Whether you hire someone to manage your Pinterest marketing, design your new logo, update your website theme or completely rebrand your business, there is a creative pro out there to help you. 

    I've hired many Freelancers from Fiverr as well as hired people right from the HerPaperRoute community (you!) and had great results from both. But, it's important to have a contract in place before any job is started. Not only to outline what work is expected, for what pay but also to cover your own butt so you can't get sued later. 

    Because unfortunately, problems arise, and you don't want to be hit with a $100,000 lawsuit. You need to take action ahead of time to have your bases covered now.

     

    So what do you put in your freelancer contract? 

    Well, to be honest, I found out yesterday that I was missing crucial information on my DIY contracts, and really wasn't covering myself in case of a problem. Thanks to my lawyer friend Amira from ASelfGuru, she let me in on her new Freelancer Contract Template, which is a fill-in-the-blanks document you can use on all of your jobs. 

    Use it both for yourself as a freelancer, and for when you hire other people to work for you. Plus you can use it over and over forever, and update it whenever you want. You have probably heard me raving about her Legal Page Template Bundle in the past, which contains a legally binding template you can use for your Affiliate disclosure page, Privacy page and Terms and Conditions. 

    This new template is amazing!!

     Video testimonial by Drew Duboff: "I love Amira's freelancer contract template because it's highly customizable. It's VERY comprehensive. It's 9 pages long. Most contracts you come across don't go this far into depth. She has done different perspectives based on whether you are a freelancer or the client hiring the contractor. Before I had this contract, I was honestly going into these engagements without a contract and sitting in the unknown of when and how I will get paid. You really do need a contract drafted by a lawyer!"
