What is This Agreement with Freelancer?

Under an agreement with a freelancer, a company hires the services of a self-employed, independent professional, usually for a specific mission/project and for a limited time.

Contrary to an ordinary employee, a freelancer does not become part of the company’s work organization and does not enjoy statutory rights as an employee.

The company, as a rule, is not liable to pay social security contributions and taxes on the freelancer’s remuneration and is free to terminate the agreement at any time without notice.

Yet authorities and social insurance have become increasingly concerned about the risk of employers attempting to circumvent the statutory rights of employees by formally hiring them as freelancers under chain contracts. It is thus quite a challenge for a company to draft an agreement that takes the freelancer’s independent status into account while providing the company with the contractual means to supervise the freelancer.
