As of October 25, 2023 the process for the Predetermination of Independent Contractor Status has changed. Now, an individual who wants to create a rebuttable presumption of independent contractor status may file a statement – Independent Contractor Statement (Form WCB-267) – with the Board. The Board will no longer review or approve the old Predetermination Applications (WCB-266).
The Independent Contractor Statement will be effective when it is received by the Board. Information regarding who has filed a statement will be available on the WCB’s webpage starting November 3, 2023 which will help members when it comes payroll audit time. You do not need to file an Independent Contractor Statement until your current predetermination is due to expire.
You can find more information about online filing of an Independent Contractor Statement (Form WCB-267) as well as Frequently Asked Questions about Independent Contractor Status on the Trust’s website at http://www.workerscompme.com/independent-contractors/.
As always, please do not hesitate to reach out to Brian if you have any questions about this new process.
