Treatment of Independent Contractors in the Construction Industry
Effective 10/26/2010, NY has clarified the way that they view subcontractors in the construction industry.
The new law states that you are considered an employee unless:
- You are free from direction and control in performing your job AND
- You perform work that is not part of the usual work done by the business that hired you AND
- You have an independently established business
In order to assist in the determination of whether a subcontractor meets the above criteria we have developed form X-4422 1010.
