Protect your work with confidence: Introducing our FREE Contract Creator

As President of the Freelancers Union, one question I'm frequently asked is, "What's the single most important piece of advice you'd give to a freelancer?" My answer is always clear: Never start a project without a contract.

You might think this is obvious, yet astonishingly, only ~28% of freelancers always use a contract when entering new agreements. This means a staggering 72% of freelancers are working without the essential safeguards that contracts provide. These aren't just formalities; they're your first line of defense to ensure that you get paid, and paid on time.

We at Freelancers Union are excited to announce the launch of our contract creator, a powerful tool designed to simplify and strengthen freelance agreements. Developed in consultation with freelance legal experts, this free resource empowers freelancers to create customized contracts tailored to their specific needs and circumstances.

Created with freelancers in mind, our contract creator offers a user-friendly interface that allows freelancers to input their information, as well as details about their clients and projects. From defining the scope of work to setting payment terms and deadlines, this tool provides comprehensive support for drafting robust agreements.

The flexibility of the contract creator makes it suitable for a wide range of freelance arrangements, from one-time projects to ongoing collaborations. With just a few clicks, you can create contracts that reflect the terms and conditions agreed upon with your clients, without the need for costly legal assistance.

We believe that freelancers deserve access to the same level of legal protection as traditional employees. That's why we're thrilled to offer the contract creator as a free resource, with no hidden fees or limitations. It's our way of supporting freelancers and helping you thrive in your careers.

Our contract creator is currently in Beta mode as we look to get feedback from our members and freelance community on what their needs are. If you have any critiques, ideas, or general feedback on contract creator, please let us know by filling out our form here:
