Reactivating a contractor agreement, or extending an independent contractor agreement after the expiration of the initial term, may significantly raise the risk of misclassification and unintended legal liabilities.
Such agreements may inadvertently suggest an ongoing employment relationship rather than a true independent contractor arrangement. If you wish to proceed, you can tick the box.
