Contractor vs. Employee

A staffing service company says they are the 'independent contractor' providing me (a business) with a 'contract employee'. My research is finding only "independent contractors" vs. employees. Is a 'contract employee' the same as an 'independent contractor'?

 Thank you!

  • An independent contractor is self employed. A temp (or contingent worker) is hired through a staffing service. A contract employee is "hired" by contract to do a job. Sometimes the contract is negotiated by an outside firm. Leased employees work for a company that, for a fee, provides temporary or permanent employees and is responsible for their wages and benefits.It sounds like you have either aa contract employee whose contract was negotiated by an outside firm or a leased employee.
