All individuals given translation and/or interpreting assignments are considered to be independent contractors unless they are full-time employees of Language Center International who receive no separate compensation for their work.
For the purposes of Language Center International (LCI), an individual is considered an Independent Contractor in terms of the general definition provided by United States Internal Revenue Service. “The general rule is that an individual is an Independent Contractor if the payer has the right to control or direct only the result of the work and not what will be done and how it will be done. The earnings of a person who is working as an Independent Contractor are subject to Self-Employment Tax.”
Effective January 2013, Independent Contractors soliciting work with LCI should submit a resume detailing their qualifications and contact information. LCI shall review all resumes and list those individuals deemed acceptable on a contact list should work arise.
All independent contractors are subject to the Independent Contractors’ Policy, which will be sent electronically prior to their first assignment.
