Independent Contractor

Independent Contractors are individuals who are subject to the control or direction from the university or Research Foundation as it relates to the results of the work performed. It is typically a specialized or technical nature that the knowledge, experience, or abilities are not available through the normal hiring process. Independent contractors may not be a CSU employee (with exceptions). Services performed as an independent contractor must not displace the work of any employee. Payment for services is based upon completion of specific work, rather than time worked. The processing of these personnel transactions by business units are defined in the links below.
