The truth is you are likely an employee, and calling you an independent contractor is tax and employment fraud by the employer.  Call the NYS Dept. of Labor.

Control is key. You may very well be an employee. Are you paid less than minimum wage or do you work more than 40 hours a week with no overtime? Call some employment lawyers.

The foregoing is not legal advice. There is no lawyer client relationship. Potential client understands that many more facts may need to be reviewed before any employment lawyer can suggest a course of action which a potential client might follow. Statutes of Limitation may be as short as 90 days, 300 days, 1 year or sometimes 3. Lawyers can almost never help someone who has missed a filing deadline. Lawyer client relationships begin when a written confirmation, often signed by potential client then lawyer, is formalized. No current or former employee should ever post negative comments or identify employers or supervisors by name on a public forum. A telephone call made by a potential client to a possible counselor at law is highly recommended when someone believes they may have a viable employment law claim. URBA LAW PLLC, New York.
