In the narrative description of business, a registrant is required to specify "the number of persons employed by the registrant." In industries where registrants' general practice is to hire independent contractors (sometimes called "contract employees" or "freelancers") rather than "employees" to perform the work of the company, this disclosure should indicate the number of persons retained as independent contractors, as well as the number of regular employees.
