You should have a general understanding of laws that may effect the contract you are negotiating. You should be clear in your negotiation that the eventual agreement will be subject to legal advice you are to receive. For instance, independent contracting arrangements are governed by commercial and contract law, not by employment law. This means that you and the hirer are free to choose the terms of your contract within the limits of the law. However, a court may be able to set aside a contract if it is considered to be ‘harsh’ or ‘unfair’.
