I have some specific tasks that need to be completed by contracted employees but I do not want to create users for all of them. Can I still send the task via email to have them complete?

An email Notification of type Open can go to any email address including an email address in a field.

Just put the field name [in square brackets] in the notify who box.

But I need the recipient to have the ability to edit the record. Any ideas?

Well, then you need to have your app open to everyone on the internet for the Role if those users. You will need to configure the user interface to hide everything, no tables, no nothing. They would get the email, update the Task and just see that one task when they save.
