Professional business people usually use contracts to define their relationship with a client. This can sometimes prove costly for the independent transcriptionist. Here is a sample contract that you may find useful for your situation.
The contract between the Transcriptionist (or Contractor), and the Subcontractor (or other transcriptionist or transcription company), allows you to agree on some simple rules when having someone else do transcription jobs for you or your company. This sample contract is good in that it addresses confidentiality and the matter of file storage and handling on your computer. (See Clause 4). It also discusses rate of pay, how you are to be paid, how you are going to pay the Subcontractor, and even discusses rules on loaned equipment responsibilities. There is also an agreement on what you can do if the work you are subcontracting stops being given to you. It has many areas that you can easily change or delete to suit your own circumstances.
