Independent Contractor or Employee? Misclassification does not make it legal!

More and more employers are calling their employees “independent contractors” to avoid paying overtime and taxes. Just because an employer calls you a “subcontractor” doesn’t make it legal. Every case is different, but one factor courts look at is how much control your boss has over your work. If your only job is working for a single boss, and he or she directs your job (hours, schedule, pay, etc.), you may be improperly classified. Many employers misclassify their employees as independent contractors to cheat on their taxes or to avoid paying overtime wages for hours worked over forty in a workweek. If you have concerns about how your boss has classified you, please call us at for a free consultation about your unique situation.
