A contract is the foundation of a good working relationship. However, too often freelancers work without one. Working without a clear agreement can lead to issues down the road including nonpayment, a problem at 70% of freelancers face at some point in their career.

As the Freelance Isn’t Free Act goes into effect, NYC freelancers are going to need to have good contracts. But all freelancers need strong contracts, which is why we partnered with AND CO to create The Freelance Contract.

The Freelance Contract is a contract building tool that is simple, easy to use, and offers guidance to help freelancers protect their work.

The Freelance Contract can be customized for use across many industries and types of gigs – from long-term agreements to one-off projects. We also provide tons of guidance along the way to help freelancers protect themselves with a contract.

This launch is just the first step – and like everything we do, its strength comes from the power of our network. Use The Freelance Contract to protect your work and share it with your colleagues to help create an industry standard.

Send us your feedback to advocacy@freelancersunion.org to help us improve The Freelance Contract and evolve it into a tool that ensures Freelance Isn’t Free.
