Part 2: Six of Nine Conditions - General Private Employers

Condition Nine - Not Economically Dependent

The individual is not economically dependent upon a particular employing unit with respect to the services being performed.

Explanation of Condition Nine

If an examination of the of the economic relationship between the worker and the employing unit establishes that the worker is independent of the employing unit, performs services and then moves on to perform similar services for another, it is evidence of an independent trade or business. On the other hand, if the economic relationship shows a strong dependence by the worker upon the employing unit, it is evidence that the worker is an employee.
