Why do I need an independent contractor agreement in France?

It's easy to forget or skip some steps along the way when you’re excited about hiring a new remote contractor, but one thing you definitely don't want to forget is an independent contractor agreement. Can you imagine reaching the deadline only to realize that your contractor had a completely different idea of what the project was supposed to be about? Not a good feeling.

A written agreement sets the stage for a productive, long-lasting relationship with your contractors. It's worth the extra effort to protect yourself and your business.

What do contractor agreements in France typically need to have?

Every contractor agreement in France (and, the rest of the world) can be broken up into two parts:

  • Contract-specific variables: This includes things like scope of work, rate, and deadline. They’re the project-specific variables that you’ll include with each contract, and are totally dependent on what type of work you’re hiring a contractor to do.
  • Everything else: Besides things like scope and deadline, every independent contractor agreement in France should follow a similar structure. If you want to grab your own contract with a compliant structure for France, sign up to Thera
What makes contractors different from employees in France?

Have you ever found yourself wondering about the difference between contractors and employees? It's not just a problem in France, but rather a common issue faced by business owners all around the world. It's easy to get confused, but it's important to properly classify your remote talent, otherwise, you might find yourself in a sticky situation. Nowadays, more and more businesses are opting to hire remote contractors because the onboarding process is a breeze in comparison to hiring an employee. It's quick, it's cost-effective, and it allows for a much more flexible working relationship.

Here are a few of the key things that make contractors different from employees in France:

  • Contractors can set their own schedules
  • Contractors can work with their own software and tools 
  • Contractors can work for other clients 
  • Contractors rarely receive benefits, like health insurance*
