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.

If you are an artist, there are special points to consider in order to determine your status.

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.


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.


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
