In these uncertain economic times, every company is looking for ways to cut expenses and conserve cash. One increasingly popular way to do so is to outsource work to independent contractors instead of hiring additional employees.

When structured properly, these consulting relationships can add tremendous value to your business. Structured improperly, these relationships can bring about disastrous results. One common mistake – treating someone as an independent contractor when they should have been an employee under federal and state law – can lead to significant liability for both you and your company.

Snell & Wilmer invites you to the next program in the Emerging Business Seminar Series™, where partner Brian J. Burt will discuss hiring independent contractors.

During this complimentary seminar we will discuss considerations when structuring and drafting the independent contractor agreement including:

  • The business deal
  • Representations and warranties
  • Authority to act for your company
  • Ownership of intellectual property
  • Confidentiality
  • Non-competition and non-solicitation covenants
  • Indemnification
