In two recent decisions, the Colorado Supreme Court rejected single and multi-factor tests used by courts and administrative agencies in determining whether individuals are employees or independent contractors under the Colorado Employment Security Act. Instead, the court adopted a “totality of the circumstances” test that involves an “inquiry into the nature of the working relationship” between the employer and putative employee.
