When working as a freelancer, having a legal contract that outlines the scope of work, establishes milestones to be met and makes clear what your compensation will be is not just a good idea, it’s a must. Usually, when you freelance for a company, they will have a contract that spells these things out. If they don’t, you will want to have one ready, for their protection as well as your own.
The Freelance Contract, a joint effort of the Freelancers Union and AND CO, makes it simple to draw up a professional contract in minutes. Just fill in some basic information about yourself and your client, answer some simple questions, and you will have a legally-binding contract. The result is editable and extensible to your needs, and features electronic signature capability. Perfect for designers, developers, photographers, writers, consultants and content creators.
