A Tennessee independent contractor agreement is a form that contains the specifics of a business relationship between a client and the independent contractor they have hired to complete a service. Details regarding the services to be completed and the compensation in exchange for said services will be included in the agreement. Aside from these key elements, an independent contractor agreement will also contain provisions regarding the time-frame in which services should be completed, expenses and costs, assignment and delegation, non-disclosure, termination, and a description of the contractor’s status. Since the independent contractor is not a partner or employee of the client, it’s important that their independent status be clearly defined in the agreement.
