The following sample outlines a set of policies and procedures for hiring and paying independent contractors.

This sample policy states that all independent contractors must meet the specified independence and hiring guidelines. An employee is considered to be an independent contractor if he/she has a separate place of business away from the company he/she is consulting for; the hiring company has no supervisory roll over the contractor (i.e. an employee is generally subject to the business' instructions about when, where, and how to work, a contractor is not under such restrictions); and has skills not available internally within the organization.
