Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
Who pays the person is not really that relevant. Sometimes employers can process payments via a third party, for various reasons, but that does not mean the employee is employed by the party which makes the payments. What matters is who controls the employee. Who controls their work, what they do, issues construction, and so on. That is who determines if they are an employee of the company, even if they do not pay them.

Pay has very little to do with the employment status of a worker. It depends on the services they provide, the control test, the mutuality of obligation on provision of work and so on - not who pays them or what tax they pay
