This question was asked at a recent webinar, now available on-demand:

"Employee or Independent Contractor? That is the Question!"

Please add your thoughts about it below. Thanks!

First and always, put the contractor services agreement in writing.

Put into writing the contract terms between the company and its contractors.

Independence is relative as it can always be challenged by federal or state agencies.

It's the company that has to prove that the subcontractor is not an employee.
