Question I have been employed as a 1099 employee at the same company for over a year now. However, this employer REQUIRES me to be at team meetings twice per week, write up weekly reports summarizing my activities, etc. Does this not sound like a W2 employee? Who do I turn to?
Answer Jen - You can ask the US Department of Labor whether it considers you to be an employee or an independent contractor. The NC labor department isn't going to do much for you, it relies on the feds for this sort of issue. If the USDOL says you should be an employee, it will notify the employer and help you to obtain any back wages or benefits you should have been receiving.
