Agents


Definition:

Agents, including members of their families that help them and persons employed by agents (based on a contract of employment), are not employees of the entity that contracts their activity but they belong to a separate group of employed persons. Among agents are not included persons conducting their own economic activity, as well as the employed persons who receive simultaneously personal earnings and agency-commission related pay in the same establishment or unit. Such persons are employees hired on the basis of employment contract.
