Contractor vs. Employee: Gut Check Self- Assessment

What Is It?

As physiotherapists, we enter into either employee or contractor work relationships. With pros and cons to each scenario, it’s important to understand the complexities of each option and the liabilities you may risk if you enter into one.

Following up from our article “Employee or Independent Contractor: What does it matter for a physiotherapist?”, we’ve created a Gut-Check Self Assessment handout with the help of Albert Nolette, a lawyer specialized in contract law. With the help of this assessment, you will get a better idea whether your “independent contractor relationship” is suitable or whether it’s worth taking a closer look.

If you answer “Yes” to the majority of these questions, you are very likely in an employer-employee relationship and further evaluation is recommended!
