Work for Hire Agreement Basics

It doesn't matter if your house needs repainting or your website needs upgrading, a Work for Hire Agreement makes sure that everyone's happy once the project is finished.

Use the Work for Hire Agreement document if:

  • You are hired as an independent contractor to complete a project.
  • You are hiring an independent contractor to complete a project.
  • You want to ensure the contractor has no rights of ownership over the work or product created under the agreement.

If you're looking to hire an independent contractor to complete work on a temporary basis, this document helps outline your expectations as to how the job will be completed. A Work for Hire Agreement allows you to determine timelines, work schedules, milestones and payment terms so that you worry less and enjoy the finished product more.

If you're hired as an independent contractor, a Work for Hire Agreement puts your obligations to clients in writing so that you're protected in the event of a disagreement. The document ensures you get paid and helps to maintain your professional relationships.

If you have legal needs outside of the Work for Hire Agreement, please check out our complete list of customizable service contracts. If you'd like more information about the hiring process, or employment forms, be sure to visit our Human Resources Guide.
