Highlight

Whether a worker is an independent contractor or an employee is a mixed question of fact and law.
The common law test for whether an individual is an employee or independent contractor focuses on the employer's right to direct and control the means and manner of performing the work.
Whether an employer has retained the right to direct and control the services performed by workers is a finding of fact.
