Answering all your questions about independent contractor agreements in Peru

You probably 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 Peru.

Why do I need an independent contractor agreement in Peru?

Independent contractor agreements should be a top priority when working with a contractor. Without one, the details of your partnership—responsibilities, deadlines, and pay— can get mixed up, with no legal foundation. A written contract gets you and a contractor on the same page while protecting you both if someone doesn’t fulfill their end of the bargain.

Peruvian law dictates that arrangements that meet one of two criteria are not legally classified as independent contractor services: the contractor’s work qualifies as the company’s “core business,” and the hiring company routinely dictates the location where the contractor works. It is important to make sure your arrangement does not violate these guidelines, as doing so puts your company at risk for expensive misclassification liability. A written agreement can help protect your company from this risk because they are a legal record of the exact terms of your partnership.

So is an independent contractor agreement really necessary? Absolutely.

What do contractor agreements in Peru typically need to have?

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

Hiring independent contractors is significantly less paperwork-intensive than hiring an employee, saving companies time, money, and stress. There are still big differences between contractors and employees after the hiring stage, though, and it’s necessary to understand them before drafting your agreement.

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

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

Many talented people opt to work as contractors because it gives them more autonomy. They are not tied to a company’s daily schedule, which gives them time to pursue a myriad of projects that interest them. For businesses, working with contractors can simultaneously reduce the stress and workload associated with the company’s operations. This results in fulfilled hires, productive businesses, and an overall smooth partnership.
