The distinguishing feature between the contract of employment and the contract for services is that the execution of the employee’s work is subordinated to the control and direction of an employer.

In a contract for services, the provider of services does not provide services under the direction of the employer; thus, there is no legal subordination. Any professional relationship is unique and therefore an analysis of the factual framework is required.
