Independent Contractor Law in Massachusetts

Friday, May 2nd, 2008

It’s not unusual for “independent contractor vs employee” legal issues to arise, because many employers classify workers as independent contractors, but then attempt to control the ICsĀ as employees.

Subsequently, Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley recently issued an advisory in which she provides guidance regarding enforcement of the Massachusetts Independent Contractor Law, also referred to as the Massachusetts Misclassification Law.

The Attorney General’s Advisory is aptly entitled “Advisory on the Massachusetts Independent Contractor Law“. Among other things, it explains the Law’s three-prong “A, B, C Test”, to which a Massachusetts employer must adhere when classifying a worker as an independent contractor or employee.
