While giving a speech on the US economy early this month, Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton vowed to “crack down on bosses who exploit employees by misclassifying them as contractors”. Over the years, Winebrake & Santillo has written many blog posts on the common misclassification of employees as independent contractors. Recently, it has come to more national attention, as demonstrated by Clinton’s mention and also by the numerous judges who have been cracking down on it.
Workers who are misclassified as “contractors” or “franchisees” are denied the benefits given to employees. If you are classified as an independent contractor, you could potentially be owed millions of dollars for improper deductions and unpaid overtime wages.
