EDD Employment Status Tutorial

The EDD has created a six-lesson online tutorial about classifying workers as either employees or independent contractors:
  1. Common misconceptions which often lead to misclassifying employees as independent contractors.
  2. Classification of workers and consequences associated with misclassifying workers.
  3. Common law - the right of control.
  4. Employee or independent contractor, and the common law test used to determine if a worker is an employee.
  5. Statutory laws affecting employment status - a worker may be an independent contractor under common law, but may be an employee under statute.
  6. Resources to properly classify workers.
