Whether you are looking for an employee or a subcontractor, the safest way to find skillful workforce is to have a light entrepreneur to do the job. See our 3 tips how a light entrepreneur will make your life easier.

2. Ensure the cooperation with an assignment agreement
A written assignment agreement between your company and the light entrepreneur will bring clarity to the cooperation and you can both feel at ease. An assignment agreement will ensure that both parties are aware of each other’s obligations, responsibilities, rights, pricing and other details. Before this, you can also request a work sample to ensure you and the light entrepreneur are on the same page.
It can be as simple as an email with both parties agreeing on the terms, or a longer, more detailed agreement. Just make sure that the agreement is in written form, and it is distinguished from an employment agreement.
