Independent Contractors

What is an independent contractor?

An independent contractor is different from an employee in a number of ways. In short, a contractor hires out their services to other individuals or organisations. It is good to be aware of the different ways an employer can engage your services – within the agriculture industry, most people will be employed as employees (either permanent, part time, or casual) rather than engaged as a contractor.

If you are interested in finding out more about independent contractors, you can read the information under different types of employment in the employer section on the People in Agriculture website.

This is a complex area so it’s worth doing your research.
