The capacity/independent contract clause repeats that the consultant is recruited as an independent contractor or consultant and not as a member of the client`s staff. Note that concealing a working relationship as an independent contractor to prevent benefits such as leave allowance, pension, work allowance and workers` income tax from being paid is illegal. A court may find that an employment relationship is an employee-employer relationship when the person hired is closely monitored and directed by the tenant. An independent contractor generally provides a qualified service, is paid for a given result, controlled by the manner in which services are provided, is free to refuse additional work and generally bears the cost of repairing defective work. A court would take all of these factors into account when deciding whether a particular employment relationship is a fictitious contract. While employment contracts are designed to recruit people in appropriate long-term positions in the company, consulting agreements include services provided by an independent person to meet the company`s periodic or temporary requirements. Self-employed contractors are individuals who provide services for payment but are not considered workers because they work for themselves and do not have an employer. For example, independent contractors are those who practice or trade in areas such as plumbing, carpentry or graphic design, or in more specialized technical environments such as accounting, engineering or computer programming. No no.
The end date is the date when advisory services are no longer provided or needed as part of the agreement. A consulting agreement is limited to a project or a fixed period. It is intended to be used by clients when they hire a consultant to provide professional services and when the commitment is not considered a job.
