Employee Classification in Connecticut: An Overview of the Standard
Employers do not get to simply choose whether or not a worker will be labeled as an employee or an independent contractor. Instead, a worker’s legal status should depend on the actual services they perform on behalf of the employer. As described by the Connecticut Department of Labor, state regulators use the ‘ABC Test’ for assessing employment status. To be considered an independent contractor, an individual must satisfy the following three key factors of Connecticut’s ABC Test:
- An individual must be free from the direct control of an employer—they must truly work independently;
- The individual must perform services for the company/organization that are outside of the usual course of the employer’s business or their place of business; and
- The individual’s occupation/trade must be consistent with the nature of the services they are performing.
