Condition Four - Contracts
The individual operates under contracts to perform specific services for specific amounts of money and under which the individual controls the means and methods of performing services.
Explanation of Condition Four
There are two sub criteria for this condition.
The first sub criterion is satisfied by showing that the worker operates under multiple contracts. This means either:
- multiple contracts with the same employing unit; or
- contracts with more than one employing unit
The second sub criterion is whether the worker "controls the means and methods of performing services." The services must be performed free from any meaningful direction or control exercised by the employer. The worker cannot be told how to perform the services. For example, the worker must be free from an employer's requirement to wear a uniform, maintain specified records or being required to have specified signage on the worker's vehicle.
