Independent Contractor

Independent Contractor

Many employers will claim that you cannot sue them or make a claim against them because you are an independent contractor as opposed to an employee.  While it is true that independent contractors do not always have the same rights as employees the determination of whether or not you are an independent contractor is not a decision of your employer but the nature of your job.  Calling you an independent contractor or paying you as an independent contractor does not necessarily make you an independent contractor.  Whether you are an independent contractor usually depends on the control over the details of your work that your employer has.  Every case is unique and every fact specific and you should seek legal advice from a competent employment lawyer regarding this issue.
