Charlie Huntington, president of the Maine Contractors and Builders Alliance, decries the execution of a law tightening the definition of what constitutes an independent contractor for workers' compensation purposes. The law presumes that any worker on a construction job site is an employee unless he or she can show proof of worker's compensation insurance or can meet the standards of a new 12-question form that would predetermine them as an independent contractor. This form, which asks for three years of tax returns and a client list, must be filled out for every job. The state is increasing scrutiny through the Joint Task Force on Employee Misclassification and is trying to increase enforcement.
