Employee vs. Independent Contractor

Are You Being Treated Like an Employee Without Benefits?

You’re an independent contractor because you want the freedom to work for yourself. Unfortunately, companies often forget that. Misclassification is a serious problem for independent contractors. The California laws that define independent contractor status are very clear. It boils down to the word independent. If you have signed a contract with a California business and now find your rights restricted, you are entitled to expect company benefits and other compensation enjoyed by employees.
