There are few work/employment situations that can give rise to particular situations of borrowed employers and servants or that may suit them. While this is not an all-inclusive list, the most common are the following: on the other hand, if you are an employer lending workers, the following courtesies are recommended: the combination and analysis of the right of control, the test of three Larson laces and the other four separate test factors will at best provide a definitive answer to the question of the «special employer» and a «borrowed servant» that follows. Special employers owe their loaned agents the same obligations as any direct worker. An employer/employee relationship is created, which must be managed both from the point of view of staff and from the point of view of risk management. States and the federal government apply specific tests to determine whether a given worker is classified as a «borrowed servant» and the employer as a «special employer.» Most of these tests deal with the issue of control. Through Lex Larson and his «Larson`s Workers` Compensation», the insurance industry combines the right of control described above with the various other tests in order to design and establish a three-part test to determine the status of employee as a loaned civil servant and the status of employer as an employer as a special employer. These tests are as follows: only three of the first four examples of «borrowed personnel» mentioned above are allowed in accordance with the endorsement instructions for the employer`s alternative confirmation. The fourth is not expressly permitted, but this relationship is also not excluded from use. Regardless of this, the permitted uses are only theoretical and drawing permission is not guaranteed; Sometimes such authorization is not even likely.
If these three questions are answered in the affirmative («yes»), the employer is almost certainly a particular employer and the worker is a loaned servant. There are other tests that were not considered by Larson and that could be considered by the court to absolutely prove the status of particular employer and loaned agent, including: the alternative confirmation of the employer (WC 00 03 01A) aims to extend coverage if workers are considered «loaned servants» of a particular employer. It is bound by the direct employer`s directive and refers to the particular employer, thus extending the protection of the employer`s policy to the alleged employer. Let`s start by concluding the discussion about control and the borrowed servant. One of the most important issues related to loaned personnel agreements is what the obligations of each party are. When a worker is loaned to another employer, the obligation to provide the worker`s compensation generally remains with the original employer. On the other hand, the borrowing employer should provide a healthy and safe working environment, ensure that the necessary resources are made available to the worker to perform his duties and that, if necessary, appropriate training is provided for similar purposes. In short, they are expected to offer loaned employees the same employment considerations as their regular employees.
