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.
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.
