The degree of instruction depends on the:
effect on the worker in the event of noncompliance, and
extent to which the business retains the right to control the worker’s compliance
with the instructions.
An indicator of employee status is when the business keeps control over the manner and means of work performance.
An indicator of independent contractor status is when the business maintains control over a particular product or service
and does not control the manner or means of delivering that product or service.
