Answering all your questions about independent contractor agreements in Togo

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 Togo.

Why do I need an independent contractor agreement in Togo?

Togo adopted a new Labor Act in 2021 that offers more comprehensive guidelines on independent contractor arrangements. While Togo does not require independent contractor agreements to be written, contractors are entitled to a written description of the work they are expected to complete. It’s best to have an independent contractor agreement that outlines all of the terms relevant to you and a contractor though, even if the law doesn’t require it.

A strong independent contractor agreement should be detailed, especially regarding compensation and deadlines, to protect you in the event of a legal dispute. In Togo, independent contractors are entitled to a certain level of autonomy, meaning they have the right to complete work without direct control or oversight from your company. Making sure your written agreement is compliant with this right is a great way to help protect your company from potential misclassification risks down the road.

Basically, you’ll want to have a written independent contractor agreement whenever you’re working with contractors. It’s an effective and relatively simple way to protect your company, a contractor’s rights, and both your sanity.

What do contractor agreements in Togo typically need to have?

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

In most cases, the hiring process for independent contractors is simpler and more cost-effective than the hiring process for employees. Before you make a decision for your company, though, you should understand the full range of differences between employees and contractors.

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

  • 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*

Remaining self-employed gives workers more autonomy than being an employee of a company. They get to avoid direct supervision and working on someone else’s schedule while pursuing work that excites them. This is a win for companies too, because they can find the best possible candidate to complete tasks without the long-term commitment that comes with hiring new employees. If this sounds right for your business, Thera can help you get started with an independent contractor agreement.
