Why Do Companies Misclassify Employees?

While some businesses may mistakenly classify an employee as a contractor, other companies may misclassify workers to save money. Companies do not have to offer contractors overtime pay and contractors generally do not receive.

Here are a few questions you can ask yourself to figure out if you are an independent contractor or employee:

  • Are you free from direction and control from the company for which you provide services?
  • Do you preform work that is outside the usual course of the company business?
  • Do you work in an independently established trade, occupation, or business from the company?
