Eleven Additional Factors
Factor Seven - Annual Leave
The seventh of eleven additional factors used to determine if a worker is an employee or a non employee is whether annual leave is afforded.
Explanation of Factor Seven
Receiving annual leave or vacation from the employer is an indication that the worker is an employee. Annual leave is a benefit that employees receive from their employers; non employees generally do not receive benefits from their employers. Receiving annual leave and/or other benefits is an indication that the worker is economically dependent on the employer.
