Work For Hire is a legal term that means, "PERSON pays money, and AUTHOR gives them the copyright for this work. Forever."

If you are seeking to secure rights to publish something from an author, and you do not mean that you wish to purchase the copyright, then do not use the term, "work for hire." Do not breathe the term work-for-hire. Do not allude to it, save perhaps to say, "no, this is not work-for-hire."

I have done Work For Hire. I am happy with how that publisher has treated me and love them oodles.

But that was RPG writing, not fiction. More, that was using someone else's sandbox entirely.
