Answering all your questions about independent contractor agreements in Honduras

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 Honduras.

Why do I need an independent contractor agreement in Honduras?

Once you’ve found someone to work with, your next step should be securing an independent contractor agreement. Independent contractor agreements are the foundation of stable business relationships. Without them, the key terms of your partnership, like the scope of work, pay, and deadlines can get confused—with no legal basis.

The Honduran labor code allows the use of verbal contracts in certain circumstances, but it’s best to always have a written agreement. Because Honduran law does not include many explicit protections for independent contractors, written contracts are necessary for preventing contractor exploitation and ensuring they get the compensation both parties agreed on. Moreover, they can help protect your business from costly lawsuits in the future if you do not receive the work you hired a contractor to complete or if you are suspected of employee misclassification.

So should you skip writing up an agreement? Definitely not. Writing a contract may create a little more work in the beginning, but it is worth it to protect your business and the contractor’s interests.

What do contractor agreements in Honduras typically need to have?

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

Hiring independent contractors is typically faster, cheaper, and less paperwork-intensive than hiring employees. However, contractors reserve additional rights instead of receiving the same benefits that employees are entitled to. It is a good idea to understand the key differences in their rights and responsibilities before drafting your first agreement.

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

  • 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*

For many workers, working as an independent contractor is preferable to being an employee because of the autonomy it affords them. They enjoy the freedom of completing their work on their schedule and taking on additional contracts as desired. As the hiring company, you can trust that your work will be completed without having to directly supervise, allowing your resources to be directed elsewhere.
