Have around 30 promoters waiting for a contract so they can start promoting a new product I am releasing through their social media accounts. I have a family friend who is a lawyer but his company just swamped him with work. He never got to send me an Independent Contract template, so I am using one online which will charge me once I download it unfortunately...
There is no telling what you are downloading and what you will be obligated to if just use an online form. An investment of having an attorney prepare an IC agreement for you will be much less expensive in the long run. It is an investment in your business. An attorney can provide an agreement tailored to your needs and best protect your interests, including non-compete, non-disclosure if applicable, as well as any payments/commissions, etc.
