Answering all your questions about independent contractor agreements in Tunisia

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 Tunisia.

Why do I need an independent contractor agreement in Tunisia?

Independent contractor agreements are the best way for you and a contractor to get on the same page before you begin working together. They typically outline all of the important details of your partnership, helping you both get a clear idea of each other’s expectations. Additionally, they force you to come to a consensus on important terms like deadlines and pay, preventing either of you from changing them unilaterally down the road.

Tunisian law does not require written independent contractor agreements, but it’s a good idea to have one anyway. Written agreements clarify the nature of your relationship with a contractor, which is important for protecting your company from possible misclassification tax liability. They establish a legal partnership between you and a contractor and hold you legally accountable to each other, ensuring you both fulfill the terms you initially agreed to.

So should you take the time to get a written contract? Absolutely. As always, it’s best to have extra legal protection and not need it than to face a dispute and have no evidence to defend yourself.

What do contractor agreements in Tunisia typically need to have?

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

Companies who work with contractors typically find that the hiring process is faster, cheaper, and easier for them than hiring employees. Before moving forward with your agreement, though, you should understand the full scope of differences between contractors and employees.

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

  • 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*

It’s probably clear why many workers prefer being independent contractors to being employees. The additional freedom allows them to do work they enjoy, take on projects as they wish, and work on a schedule that works best for them. For companies like yours, this means contracting with talented people to get tasks done without the extra stress and commitment of bringing on a new employee. If this sounds right for your company, we can help you get started with a written agreement.
