Independent Contractor Rights Acknowledgment Form - Digital
An attorney-reviewed form to inform independent contractors about their unique rights under applicable laws and regulations.
All individuals who perform work for a business must be properly classified as either an employee or an independent contractor. Both types of workers have specific rights under applicable laws and regulations, and because those rights vary considerably, misclassifying a worker can result in legal issues for the hiring employer. If a worker is classified as an independent contractor, they have the right to control their own work hours, the location they perform the required work, and their method of work. They also have the right to challenge their classification as a contractor and assert that they should be classified as an employee if the hiring entity exerts control over the method, location, and duration of work.
Our digital, attorney-reviewed Independent Contractor Rights Acknowledgment Form informs hired contractors of their rights under applicable laws and includes space for the worker to sign that they understand those protections. Communicating to contractors about their specific legal rights can help employers demonstrate good-faith compliance with worker classification laws in the event of an audit or lawsuit.
