In a previous post, we looked at the list of factors that California courts and agencies use to determine whether a particular worker is an independent contractor or employee. To better understand how these factors interplay with each other, it is best to look at the actual cases decided by the courts in the past.
My employer asked me to sign an independent contractor agreement and at the end of each year I get an IRS form 1099 instead of a W-2. Does it mean I am an independent contractor?
The short answer is no. Just because your employer classified you as an independent contractor,
I work over 8 hours a day and sometimes more than 40 hours a week. Do I deserve overtime?
The short answer is yes, you deserve overtime, but only if you are a non-exempt employee. Under California labor law, everyone who works beyond normal hours deserves overtime pay.
