3315.0555 DETERMINING WORKER STATUS.

Subpart 1.

Factors.

When determining whether an individual is an employee or an independent contractor, five factors must be considered and weighed within a particular set of circumstances. The five factors to be considered are:

A.

the right or the lack of the right to control the means and manner of performance;

B.

the right to discharge the worker without incurring liability for damages;

C.

the mode of payment;

D.

furnishing of materials and tools; and

E.

control over the premises where the services are performed.

The two most important factors are items A and B.

Other factors, not specifically identified in this part, may be considered if the outcome is inconclusive when applying the factors in items A to E. The degree of their importance may vary depending upon the occupation or work situation being considered and why the factor is present in the particular situation.
