An individual who is contracted to perform a specific project or service for a specified amount.
One who is retained to perform a certain act subject to the control and direction of another as to the end result but not as to how the act is performed. The critical feature is that an independent contractor, unlike an employee, is not subject to the control of the person who retained him or her.
A classification of workers hired to do specific jobs over which the person hiring has no right to control the manner in which the work is done. The workers generally have a distinct trade or business that is offered to the public, and are often paid a lump-sum amount for the completed job. An independent contractor is not considered an 'employee'.
