North Carolina independent contractor agreements are used to establish the terms of business between a client and an independent contractor hired to perform a service. The document will describe what the contractor is being hired to do and how much money they will be paid once these services have been rendered. In order to avoid unnecessary expenditures, the client should specify whether the contractor will be expected to cover their own expenses and obtain liability insurance for the duration of the contract. In addition to holding both parties accountable, the contract protects the client from certain liabilities by clarifying the contractor’s independent status.
