The Massachusetts independent contractor agreement states the services that a contractor agrees to complete in exchange for payment from a client. In addition to the services to be performed and the payment to be made, the contract lays out the terms by which the contractor must operate, as well as any expenses that the client will provide. However, in order to have independent contractor status, the contractor must be doing work outside of the client’s usual course of business and be free to work without control or direction from the client. Once signed, the document is legally binding and may be used if either party disputes the agreement.
