Things to Know:
  • Any individual performing services for the University will be presumed to be an employee unless the individual meets all of the independent contractor criteria, established within policy FIN-ACC-I-630. All departments need to ensure these criteria are met prior to setting up a vendor to be paid for services as an independent contractor.
  • University Tax Services provides an aid in helping departments understand this policy. See Financial Management Services :: Contractor vs. Employee.
