Answering all your questions about independent contractor agreements in Mauritania

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 Mauritania.

Why do I need an independent contractor agreement in Mauritania?

An independent contractor agreement is a legally binding contract outlining the terms of your partnership with a contractor. They typically detail the work the contractor must complete, the deadlines, and their compensation. At its core, an independent contractor agreement is a way for you and a contractor to reach an understanding before your contract actually begins. 

Mauritanian law does not require written agreements for partnerships with independent contractors, but it’s always best to have one anyway. Working with independent contractors is legally considered a civil arrangement, so a written contract signed by both parties is often the only legal ground for either of you to raise disputes. A compliant written agreement also gives you legal protection against employee misclassification risks. They act as a record of the nature of your relationship with a contractor and can help prove your relationship never ventured into employee territory. 

So even though the law doesn’t require it, you’ll want to have a written independent contractor agreement. For your protection, and the contractor’s.

What do contractor agreements in Mauritania typically need to have?

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

If you need to save money and time associated with the hiring process, working with independent contractors is a great solution. Instead of falling under your company’s umbrella, independent contractors work for themselves and provide a service to your company as a client. 

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

  • 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*

In addition to saving your company time and money, independent contractor arrangements are ideal for many workers because of the freedoms it affords them. The ability to work on their own terms gives independent contractors the freedom to create a career that excites them. It also works out for your company, because you get to choose from a talented pool of workers to fulfill your company’s vision.
