Policy EA-02 - Determining the Status of a Person: Employer, Worker, Sole Proprietor or Non-Working Director

Effective Dates

January 1, 2015 and still in effect


Employer Assessments

General Information

This policy addresses circumstances where there is a need to determine the work relationship between workplace parties. Most cases are clear in that the employerworker relationship exists; however, in some situations an individual may be a sole proprietor and not a worker. This policy is designed to provide the criteria for making such a determination.


This policy defines when a person is a “worker”, an “employer”, or a “sole proprietor” in order to determine whether workers’ compensation coverage is mandatory or optional under the Workers’ Compensation Act S.Y. 2008 (the “Act”).
