Just because your employer calls you an independent contractor or you have a contract that states you are an independent contractor, that doesn’t necessarily mean, under the Workers’ Compensation Act of Pennsylvania, that you are an independent contractor. Jim Monaghan is a workers’ comp lawyer and in this short video he provides several workers’ comp examples including in the trucking business and the construction industry. The court will look at how the employee is paid, who provides the equipment, and what work is being done. Jim Monaghan helps workers prove their work status so they are entitled to workers’ compensation if they are hurt on the job.
