Independent Contractor Questionnaire

Welcome to Otis’ Independent Contractor Questionnaire Form!

 

The Independent Contractor Questionnaire online form is a compliance questionnaire created to determine the proper employment status between an Independent Contractor and an Employee.

Otis Employee

This is processed by Human Resources & Development.

  • A specific wage or salary.
  • An implied or written contract.
  • Control of the person’s work by the College.

Example: Someone hired to photograph a College-sponsored event where the College provides the camera equipment, space, dictates schedule for work, and pays for the development of the photos.

Independent Contractor

This is processed by Business Office.

Person whose earnings are subject to Self-Employment Tax and the Payer (Client) has the right to control or direct only the result of the work and not what will be done and how it will be done.
