Eleven Additional Factors

Factor Four - Length of time worked

The fourth of eleven factors used to determine if a worker is an employee or a non employee is the length of time during which the individual has worked.

Explanation of Factor Four

Employment relationships tend to be of longer duration or are more likely to be of indefinite length. Non employment relationships are generally of shorter duration and involve the completion of a specific project or service.

Case Studies
