The California independent contractor agreement is used by a client who seeks to develop a working relationship between themselves and an independent contractor. The document allows the client and the contractor to enter into an arrangement where compensation is provided to the contractor after they fulfill a specific obligation. Furthermore, the document helps prove the validity of the contractor’s status as an independent worker who operates without the supervision or control of a separate individual or company. Establishing this information is necessary as it ensures the government that the worker is not entitled to benefits typically bestowed upon employees.
