    Adoption: 2006-11-12 | AUS-2006-L-76585

    The Independent Contractors Act 2006 was developed to:
    - protect the freedom of independent contractors to enter into services contracts
    - recognise independent contracting as a legitimate form of work that is primarily commercial
    - prevent parties from interfering with the terms of genuine independent contracting arrangements.
    The Act does this by recognising that the rights, entitlements, obligations and liabilities of the parties involved in a services contract are governed by the terms of the contract.
