Under this contract, the worker undertakes to personally do or perform any work or services for another party to the contract (the employer). The employer is not a client or customer of any profession or business undertaking carried on by worker. The worker is not self-employed (shop workers and betting workers are excluded from this description) – [Section 230(3), ERA 1996]
