Low-powered incentives with firm control of the work routine occurs. This implies use of employees. Generally speaking, as 1 − p is lower ( p is higher), the forcing contract with employees emerges. As ␴2 is lower, the incentive pay regime is more likely to occur. If ␴2 is low enough to be located in region I, independent contractors are used. 5. Noncontractible Investment We take one further generalization to allow the parties to make noncontractible investment in assets (human or nonhuman). We assume that investments must be made ex-ante, that is, prior to (but in anticipation of) the choices of compensation regime, b1 or wN , effort, and r.

The expected profit functions are labeled E(␲f ) and E(␲w ). For values of ␴2 above A, firm control of the work routine is more profitable. A higher ␴2 lowers b1 in either case. A lower b1 causes more distortion in r in the worker choice scenario, but less for firm choice, making the latter more profitable. Thus, where the value of worker output is difficult (costly) to measure or inherently variable (␴2 is large), firm control of the worker routine emerges. This involves a low level of incentive pay.
