Criteria Used to Determine a Worker's Status

To determine whether you are considered a self-employed person or an employee, we assess the degree of subordination existing between you and your client or employer.

Self-employed person

You are considered a self-employed person if you are free to choose the means of carrying out a contract and no relationship of subordination exists between you and your client.

Employee

You are considered an employee if, under a written or verbal contract, you undertake for a limited time to do work for remuneration under the direction or control of an employer.

Criteria

The following six criteria determine your status:

  • subordination in the performance of work
  • financial or economic criterion
  • ownership of tools
  • integration of the tasks carried out
  • specific result of the work
  • the parties' attitude regarding their relationship
