Answering all your questions about independent contractor agreements in Rwanda

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 Rwanda.

Why do I need an independent contractor agreement in Rwanda?

It might seem like business arrangements can be made with just a verbal agreement, but this is a bad idea. Verbal agreements tend to have very little legal backing, making it impossible to guarantee a fair resolution in the event of a dispute. Written independent contractor agreements, however, are legally binding contracts that hold companies and contractors accountable to the terms they signed on. 

Independent contractor agreements give contractors peace of mind by ensuring they will receive the agreed-upon pay for their work. Similarly, companies benefit from contractor agreements because they give contractors an incentive to produce quality work. Beyond this, compliant independent contractor agreements ensure the terms of the business relationship are within the legal parameters for independent contractors, helping protect companies from potentially costly misclassification liability. 

So…You need a written contract if you’re going to be working with contractors. The small effort up front will go a long way in saving you stress down the road.

What do contractor agreements in Rwanda typically need to have?

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

In general, the process of hiring an independent contractor involves less red tape than hiring an employee, often resulting in a cheaper, easier, and less time-consuming process for the hiring company. After the hiring phase, though, the differences between employees and independent contractors are still significant. 

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

  • 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*

With the ability to set their schedules, take on work as they please, and generally have control over their work-life balance, it’s no wonder so many professionals prefer to work as independent contractors. As the hiring company, you benefit from the flexibility of hiring talented contractors to complete work without the same level of risk and commitment that comes with hiring an employee. If this is right for you and your business, Thera can help you get started with an independent contractor agreement.
