Answering all your questions about independent contractor agreements in Saudi Arabia

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 Saudi Arabia.

Why do I need an independent contractor agreement in Saudi Arabia?

A written agreement is extremely useful when hiring, as it establishes all necessary details from the outset. This applies not just in Saudi Arabia, but globally. Having a clear agreement in place allows both sides to begin the project without any concerns. The agreement should include information about the job duties, duration of the position, payment for the contractor, and other important details.

But what happens when you don’t create it? The short answer is: it could be nothing or it could be something. But trust us, you don’t want to wait around for that something to come. In Saudia Arabia, you can go off on verbal agreement too, but it’s often unusable in court. Not to mention that going off by verbal agreements often leads to unclear work conditions, which lead to misunderstandings, which could lead to complex legal troubles.

It’s important to have an independent contractor agreement in place to protect both your and your talent's interests. Don’t waste a potentially great collaboration on issues that could’ve easily been avoided!

What do contractor agreements in Saudi Arabia typically need to have?

Every contractor agreement in Saudi Arabia (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 Saudi Arabia should follow a similar structure. If you want to grab your own contract with a compliant structure for Saudi Arabia, sign up to Thera
