Independent Contractor and Workers' Compensation

Independent contractor are not entitled to workers’ compensation. However, whether an individual is a statutory employee or an independent contractor is a dictated by the facts and circumstances. These factors can include whether payment is by wage or by the job, the length of time the worker has been employed, if the employer provides the tools for the worker, and the control the employer has over the worker. As you can tell there are a wide set of factors that courts use to determine whether the individual is an employee or an independent contractor but no factor is determinative on its own. As such, courts will look at the totality of the factors to make the determination.
