Independent Contractor/Relationship of the Parties. It is very important that a party to a contract who is not an employee of WSU is expressly declared as such in any contract.
"It is mutually understood and agreed that an independent contractor relationship is hereby established under the terms and conditions of the Agreement. Nothing herein shall be construed to create any partnership, joint venture, employment, or agency relationship between University and Contractor."
If you have any questions about whether the other party is an independent contractor, contact University Legal Counsel.
