Have I Been Misclassified As An Independent Contractor?
Minnesota employers carry workers’ compensation insurance that provides wage and medical benefits for injured employees. Because independent contractors do not have an employer, such workers are often faced with significant challenges when they have been injured on the job.
Independent Contractor Misclassification
If you have been labeled as an independent contractor by an employer, please note that this may be a misclassification, and you may actually be an employee as defined by the law. Under Minnesota state law, it is the employer’s burden to prove that you are an independent contractor. There are several issues that must be analyzed to determine if you have been misclassified as an independent contractor:
- Whose equipment do you use when performing your work duties?
- Do you have an independent business?
- Do you provide work for other companies?
- How are you compensated?
