Independent Contractor

Determining whether an individual may be engaged as an independent contractor instead of being hired as a University employee requires thorough evaluation of the arrangement. Typically, former employees may not be engaged as independent contractors immediately following their departure to perform the same or substantially similar work; instead they should be hired as temporary employees.

In addition, contracts may be subject to competitive selection requirements. Purchasing and Contracting Services oversees independent contractor arrangements.
