Independent Contractor FAQ

An independent contractor is contracted for service whereas an employee has a contract of service. “Economic dependency” is a good indication as to whether a worker is an independent contractor or an employee. The more economically dependent a worker is on the employer, the more one can assume the worker is an employee.

Economic dependency is how much a worker relies on their employer to do business. If a worker is completely dependent economically on one client, that client is most likely an employer. A worker with several clients is most likely an independent contractor.

Some factors that can help determine whether a worker should be classified as a contractor or an employee:

Employee

  • Subject to the control and supervision of the employer regarding the work performed, including how the work is done and when it is done.
  • Engaged in tasks that are essential to the regular business operations of the employer.
  • Has an ongoing, long-term relationship with the employer.
  • Use tools and equipment provided by the employer.
    Integrated into the daily operations of the business.
  • Courts and labor authorities may consider the economic dependence of the worker on the employer. If the worker is economically dependent on the employer for their livelihood and sustenance, they are more likely to be classified as an employee.

Contractor

  • Has more autonomy over how they perform their work.
  • Hired for specific projects or tasks that are not part of the core business functions.
  • Engaged for a specific project or a finite period.
  • Use their own tools, equipment, and materials needed to perform the work.
  • Contractors may work independently.

All rights and obligations of an employer would be outlined in the contract between the parties. Some rights and obligations are statutory and cannot be waived by agreement varying by jurisdiction. Employers do not have to manage social security contributions, taxes, or insurance for independent contractors as they would for employees. Independent contractors bear the responsibility.

Employers have more statutory obligations to employees than to independent contractors. Statutory obligations to employees are centered around the employment relationship. Employees will have more protections than an independent contractor. Employers are required to pay social security contributions, remit taxes, and secure insurance depending on the type of economic activity in which they are involved.

A: No, because the law will treat them as an employee, even if they agreed to be an independent contractor. Virtually all jurisdictions will find an employee-employer relationship despite the existence of a contract-for-service agreement where the worker is treated like an employee.

Employers who hire independent contractors who are in-fact employees can face a variety of repercussions depending on the jurisdiction. Employers could be liable for social security contributions, vacation time, sick leave, overtime, taxes, etc. retroactively.

Contracts payment frequency are paid by milestone, fixed term or pay as you go. With the milestone method, you pay after key intervals during the project. On a fixed term, you pay weekly, semi-monthly, or monthly intervals. Pay as you go requires a timesheet log that is hourly based, and paid monthly.

Yes. Engage Anywhere can deploy a timesheet software with client approval process. Manage and approve the project hours and predict your total cost on the projects.
