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