You recently hired an outside vendor to complete some work for your business. You are likely already aware that you need either an Independent Contractor Agreement or an Outsourced Services Agreement to outline the specific details and expectations of the job. But in addition to that agreement, you also need to list the work that is expected from the contractor. To keep everything organized, and to keep you and the contractor on the same page, you should also include a Services Work Order.

Frequently Asked Questions



The services work order is a legally binding contract that accompanies a Services Agreement - it is an order for additional tasks to be completed by an independent contractor. 




If you wish to continue the independent contractor-client relationship under the Services Agreement after the completion of the initial tasks assigned, but before the expiration of the Services Agreement’s term, you can execute a Work Order to assign the Independent Contractor more tasks.



If you are hiring an independent contractor, you would use this type of agreement to set out the terms and conditions of the employment arrangement.



Although it gives you less control over how a party conducts their tasks, hiring an independent contractor is typically a more cost effective and simple process than hiring a new employee. The independent contractor-client relationship is also the best suited for relatively short terms of employment.

The services work order is fairly straightforward and includes:

  • Recitals - This section describes the who, when and why of the work order;

    • Who - The name of both parties is given;

    • When - The date of the original agreement and the new work order is listed; and 

    • Why - The parties are entering into the work order because both want to continue the independent contractor-client relationship.

  • Services - The Work Order identifies specific tasks to be accomplished in the immediate future and the rate of compensation for those services.

    • Each party should assign a contact person to handle the correspondence with the other party concerning the work order.

    • The terms of delivery of work product (if applicable).

    • The tasks and their corresponding pay rates are listed.

Signatures - Each party must sign the agreement for it to be legally effective.

Please Note: The use of a notary ensures that no one challenges any signatures later and is a secure way to firmly establish the effectiveness of your document.
