California law establishes an “ABC test” to determine whether a worker can be considered a self-employed contractor. For antique dealers and mall operators, it`s important to note that an IC deal in California is not a determining factor. The court stated that a worker is an independent contractor only if each of these three factors is met: the seller, when signing this contract, agrees to be responsible for the attractive presentation of the agreed goods in the allocated space. The supplier is responsible for maintaining a clean and welcoming environment inside the stand. to keep their products only in approved zones. The seller understands that the shop is not responsible for the loss of an item due to theft or damage and that the shop is not responsible for the insurance of the seller`s property, whether for sale or exhibition. The relationship is strictly owner-tenant, or at least should be. Tenants pay money to landlords, not the other way around. Including an IC clause in a lease is problematic for reasons you will soon see. On the other hand, if a tenant performs tasks according to a standalone schedule with its own methods, it is the tenant who controls. The only thing an owner can control is the results: Contract work must be performed “on time” and meet quality standards.. .
