Getting hired to a work-at-home job is very exciting. But before you put in one second of effort, make sure you have a written contract in place. Without a contract, you’re working without a net and could end up working for free. Most employers are on the up and up, but to be sure, get a written contract or agreement that outlines:
1) The job description
2) Your wage or salary, payment methods and payment schedule.
3) Hours and days you need to work (if its a set schedule).
4) Anything else you or the employer deems important.
This should be signed by both you and the employer.
Protect yourself and your income by always getting the terms of your job in writing!
