This is super valuable! As an owner of a 1-person (me!) S-Corp, I'm always reviewing/discussing/tweaking and ultimately signing other companys' contracts. They each have their own quirks that often require awkward discussions. I'm really happy there's now, at minimum, a fair reference to compare them to... and at most, a fair and agreeable contract to move forward on. Thanks @leifthunder for sharing!

Hey Everyone! Over the lasts months, we've been working with the Freelancers Union to build the Standard Freelance Contract that is fair for both freelancers and companies and therefore helps to create more balanced and secure work relationships. The contract is built into AND CO's workflow and therefore easily customizable, had built-in alerts and e-signing, automatically creates invoices and more. Also, the agreement ensure both parties are compliant with the upcoming Freelance Isn't Free Act, an NYC law that takes effect in April and which the Freelances Union helped come to life. We believe by introducing a standard agreement is that vetted by an independent third party, it helps to eliminate the awkward and painful back-and-forth at the start of any work relationship and therefore helps to get to work faster. Tho, it does not stop here. The contract is a living document that anyone can contribute to. Based on all contributions, we will create new versions of the contract that will automatically update in the AND CO app as well. We hope this helps out a lot of freelancers and companies that are freelancer-friendly. Looking forward to hear what you think! Thanks!

@leifthunder That first bit of back-and-forth around whose document to use and then having to re-acquaint yourself with someone else's form, etc. is worthless. Zero value created for anyone. Very cool to get rid of that.

Great ideas! Any plans for making it available in other languages? (+1 for French!)
