‘[tweetmeme source=”RoseA_smallbiz” only_single=false]’ Entrepreneurs must always be cautious!

Subcontractors.  This is a relationship that screams for a contract.

You are asking someone who is not an employee to do work for you. You will be paying them. There are parameters that should be nailed down, agreed to, and put in writing.

A subcontractor contract does not have to be long or terribly wordy. The purpose is to detail the expectations on both sides of the table.

  • What will the contractor do for you and your client?
  • What will you pay the contractor?
  • When will you pay them?
  • How and when will they report to you?
  • How will the contractor interact with your clients?
