Question: What should I do if my employer treated me as an independent contractor when I should have been an employee?
I know about form SS-8 with the IRS. Is that the best way to resolve this situation? Will I have to go to court? Fixing it with my employer is unfortunately not an option.
I was suppose to sign something about being a subcontractor when i started 9 months ago but it was never signed. Either was my W-9 for or my Employment Eligibility Verification. The reason why i know i am an employee is that i work 8-5 m-f in his office on all of his equipment. I answer the phones. run the errands. All of my expenses are reimbursed to me. I pick up his kid a few times a month. I get coffee for our clients. The list of tasks that he gives me goes on and on. Not to mention that i receive vacation time payout and sick days along with Holiday pay. I really dont believe i an a sub contractor when i do all of these tasks along with QuickBooks, Emails, News Letters, Banking……
Answer: Another common reason employers treat their agents as independent contractors is to avoid liability. An employer can be liable for the acts of an employee as if the employer did the act itself and that is not the case with an independent contractor generally. I also agree with and have the same question as the last post. Also, what do you mean by ‘fix.’ Is it a tax issue? If you cannot go to the employer, then there are regulatory agencies like the state employment department that may be able to help you.
Am I an employee or a contractor?
By not withholding taxes, your bosses avoid payroll taxes and the cost of complying with tax rules.
