ARE YOU AN INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR? One very popular pay scheme involves telling employees they are “independent contractors” and then failing to pay those employees according to the law.
That does not mean all independent contractors are employees – many people earn a good living working for themselves.
If you own your own business or work for multiple “clients”, then you probably are an independent contractor. On the other hand, if it seems like you are an employee but called an independent contractor for your employer’s benefit or convenience, CONTACT Leiman Law, PC for a FREE no obligation consultation to learn more about the legal test for who is, and who is not, an independent contractor under the law.
An employee misclassified as an “independent contractor” may by entitled to unpaid wages, unpaid overtime, and penalties.
