Eleven Additional Factors

Factor Nine - Retirement Benefits

The ninth of eleven additional factors used to determine if a worker is an employee or a non employee is whether the worker accumulates retirement benefits.

Explanation of Factor Nine

Accumulating retirement benefits from an employer is an indication that a worker is an employee. Non employees are generally responsible for providing for their own retirements. Accumulating retirement benefits and/or other benefits from an employer is an indication that the worker is economically dependent on the employer.
