Am I a contractor?

Contractors who perform contract cleaning work can register for the scheme. You must also register if you employ people to perform cleaning work.

The scheme does not cover you if you are:

  • engaged solely to supervise workers
  • performing only or mainly managerial or clerical duties
  • under contract or service with a Commonwealth, State, Territory or Local Government authority
  • directly employed by the owner of the premises you clean.

Am I a contractor or an employee?

Several factors determine if you are a contractor or an employee. You should take into account all of your working arrangements. This includes your ability to delegate, how you're paid and who provides the equipment you use.

Contact the ATO or Fair Work if you an uncertain about your working arrangements.
