It’s not uncommon for a business to run into a need to outsource, which most of the time means working with an independent contractor. For example, if you have a business premise, you might need maintenance, electrical services, or an external audit. You know you should use an independent contractor agreement. It’s just that the contract alone is sometimes not enough.
An independent contractor agreement outlines both parties’ responsibilities without going into detail about the work. When you add a Services Work Order into the mix, you can use it to list all of the tasks you want to get done.
A Services Work Order is used to give detailed instructions to an independent contractor. The work order is often issued after you have a separate contractual agreement or outsourced services agreement in place. As the name suggests, it contains explanations of the work ordered – in other words, just like any work order.
Also, if you have an agreement with an independent contractor for a specific task, you can order more work with a Services Work Order. If your deal is still valid, and if both parties agree, you can assign more tasks to the independent contractor with one or more Services Work Orders.
In the United States and many other places, anyone not your employee you’ve retained to do work for is an independent contractor. You can get a Services Work Order out to an individual or a company. If a company wants to hire an employee from one department to do something in another department, the management can use a Services Work Order.
Depending on your state, a Services Work Order may also be known as:
Those who have signed an independent contractor agreement with an independent contractor can use Services Work Orders to order more tasks. If your separate contractor agreement has not expired, you can always add additional functions with one or more Services Work Orders. Also, if your company wants to outsource, you can use the work order to explain the tasks in detail. Companies often use Services Work Orders when outsourcing cleaning services, maintenance, and other tasks requiring skilled workers.
A Services Work Order makes sense for both parties since the document, if adequately executed, defines all expectations in no uncertain terms.
