What You Should Know About Worker Classification in Connecticut

A business or organization cannot simply decide that you are a contractor. You can only be labeled as an independent contractor based on your actual day-to-day job duties and your relationship to the employer. As explained by the Connecticut Department of Labor, the ‘ABC Test’ is used to determine a worker’s appropriate classification. Here are three standards that must be satisfied before an individual can be considered a contractor: 

  1. They are truly free in how/when they perform services—meaning they are not in direct control of the employer;
  2. The individual performs services outside of the scope or place of the employer’s normal business operations; and
  3. The alleged independent contractor is actually performing services consistent with their profession/occupation. 

Know Your Rights: Employee Classification Matters

Based on the way workplace relationships are structured under state and federal law, many employment law rights and benefits are tied directly to a worker’s status as an employee. Put another way, independent contractors do not receive the same degree of legal protections as employees. Misclassified employees are being taken advantage of by an employer. If you are wrongly labeled as a contractor in Hartford, you could miss out on: 

  • Minimum wage rights;

  • Overtime rights;

  • Wage and hour rights;

  • Unemployment insurance protections; and

  • Company/organization contributions to Social Security/Medicare.
