Need to figure out whether the people that work for you are independent contractors or in fact employees that need to be covered under workers comp? The helpful info below should help answer this question!
It can be tough to decide as a business owner whether the people that are working for you are technically an employee of your company or in fact an independent contractor. This, of course, will dictate your work comp policy that you need to carry and can help you avoid costly, unexpected audit penalties. Below are some basic guidelines to follow which will help you navigate this sometimes confusing process!
The Workers’ Compensational Act states that any individual who performs work for you as an employee unless the individual:
- Is free from control and direction in the performance of the service, and
- Is customarily engaged in an independent trade, occupation, profession, or business related to the service being provided, and
- Has no workers
The facts will determine the status of employee or general contractor
Is the individual “free from control of direction?”
- Do you tell the individual when or how doing the job?
- Do you provide tools or equipment
If the answer is no to these questions, the facts indicate the individual is free from control
Is the individual “engaged in an independent trade, occupation, profession or business?
Does the individual:
- Has business name?
- Carry business insurance?
- Offer this service to any other business?
- Submit invoices?
- Supply the tools and vehicle?
- Work alone? (if not, he or she may need to carry workers’ compensation.)
- Are the payments made to the business name?
- Is the individual paid by a fixed rate?
If the answer is yes to all of the above questions, the facts indicate the individual is independent.
