To determine if a worker is an employee or an independent contractor you must look at the employer’s right of control over the worker. There are four common questions used to determine an employer’s right of control:
1) Is there direct evidence of the right to control?
2) Who paid the worker?
3) Who furnished the supplies or equipment?
4) Who has the right to fire the worker?
