What Is an Independent Contractor and How Do You Identify and Properly Classify Individuals?


Review the 20 factors that help determine is sufficient control is present to establish an employer-employee relationship.

Unless otherwise controlled by statute, typically the governmental agency or court determining whether an individual is an employee, or an independent contractor will use what is commonly referred to as the common law test. Pursuant to the common law test, one must consider all facts and circumstances, with particular importance on whether the company actually “directs and controls” the methods, means and manner of an individual’s performance. This video reviews the common law test, the IRS 20 Factor Test and the notorious ABC test.
