Responsiblities to an arranger?

I am rather new at publishing music, although I have been writing for many years.  I have recently wrote the script for a musical play and have written 6 of the 8 songs myself.  Two others wrote one song each.  I paid someone to have the music transcribed. I also told this person exactly what I wanted as far as the arrangements.  He did write a few harmonies in 4of the songs.
My question is, other than giving credit to this person as the "arranger" for the music and having paid him, is there any other financial responsibility I have to him?  There was nothing listed in the contract except the payment for the transcription of the songs.
If anyone could help with this question, I would be most grateful.
Thank you,
Debbie Thomas
