Payment by the hour, week, or month generally points to an employer-employee relationship,
if this method of payment is not a way of paying a lump sum agreed upon as the cost
of doing a job.
Payment of regular amounts at stated intervals to a worker is a strong indication
that an employer-employee relationship exists.
Payments received from a third party (e.g., tips or fees) are not controlling in determining
whether an employment relationship exists.
Generally, a worker is an employee if he or she is guaranteed a minimum salary or
is given a drawing account of a definite amount at stated intervals and is not required
to repay any excess drawn over commissions earned.
