Answering all your questions about independent contractor agreements in Guinea

You may have You may have questions. We’re here to answer them. Below, you’ll learn all the extra stuff you should probably know before putting together an independent contractor agreement for Guinea.

Why do I need an independent contractor agreement in Guinea?

The Guinean civil code’s guidelines for independent contractors specify that contractors are workers hired to complete tasks without subordination to the hiring company and, beyond the deadlines agreed to in their contract, contractors are not subject to instruction from the hiring company about how to complete their work. If these guidelines are consistent with the type of help your company is looking for, you’ll want to begin thinking about an independent contractor agreement. 

Some companies risk working with contractors with only a verbal agreement, but you should not. Written contracts provide clarity for the duration of the relationship because they are an easy resource to refer to if there is confusion about the terms of your agreement. They give you and the contractor the security of knowing you are both legally accountable to the initial terms of your agreement. Additionally, a compliant written agreement is an excellent resource to establish the nature of your relationship with a contract, helping protect your company from employee misclassification risk. 

So, it’s in the best interest of your company and any contractor you work with to have a written independent contractor agreement—regardless of where you hire.

What do contractor agreements in Guinea typically need to have?

Every contractor agreement in Guinea (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 Guinea should follow a similar structure. If you want to grab your own contract with a compliant structure for Guinea, sign up to Thera
What makes contractors different from employees in Guinea?

Whereas employees work under the direct supervision of a company, independent contractors legally work for themselves. As a result, the hiring process for contractors usually saves businesses time and money compared to the hiring process for employees. Beyond hiring, contractors and employees also have different freedoms and entitlements.

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

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

By now, it’s probably clear why so many professionals choose to work as independent contractors. For many workers, the freedom to control their schedules, pursue work that excites them, and be their own boss are benefits that can’t be beaten by traditional employment. So what does this mean for your business? You get to work with the best possible candidates for the work you need done without going through a lengthy hiring process. In many ways, independent contractor arrangements are a win-win for everyone involved.
