BR-121929-XA (June 26, 2012) – Tutors, who were required to meet extensive reporting and performance requirements, were subject to so much direction and control by the employing unit within the meaning of G.L. c. 151A, § 2(a), as to be employees, notwithstanding the tutor’s high level of skill and the fact that several of them held themselves out as independent contractors and performed tutoring services for other entities.  [Note: The District Court affirmed the Board of Review’s decision.]
