Employees vs Independent Contractors Sweden

Updated as of 2017


In Sweden, the differences in terms of protective legislation for employees compared to independent contractors are rather significant. The legislation considering employees and employment is extensive while standard civil- and contract law applies for a relationship between a company and an independent contractor. The characterization of the contract is made by an overall assessment of the circumstances. Hence, a re-charac-
terization may have significant legal consequences.
