Introducing Shake’s Skilled Labor Agreement Template

by Vinay Jain Introducing Shake’s Skilled Labor Agreement Template

Whether you’re a carpenter, plumber, electrician, mason, maintenance/repair person, landscaper, or house cleaner — or are looking to hire one — Shake’s Skilled Labor Agreement will help you and the person you’re working with get on the same page.

The Skilled Labor Agreement is a quick, mobile, plain-English contract that documents the terms of the working relationship between a skilled worker (who is not an employee) and a client. Among the things it covers are:

  • The Scope of Work
  • Change Orders
  • Invoicing & Payment
  • Permits, Certificates & Licenses
  • Insurance
  • Liens
  • Warranties
  • Agreement Termination

As with any situation where you’re entering into an agreement with someone, educate yourself first. There may be laws specific to your state that dictate whether certain kinds of skilled laborers are to be treated as employees rather than independent contractors for certain kinds of tax withholding purposes.
