Countless employers are currently using the current economic climate as an excuse to take advantage of their employees. Just because they don’t want to pay their taxes doesn’t mean you should get screwed. Does your boss tell when what hours to work? How to do the work? Is the work you do dependent on the day to day operation of the business? Does the success of the business depend on this work being done? (i.e. Are you the point person for significant accounts?) Do you have to do the work yourself (as opposed to hiring someone else to do it for you)? Does your boss set your hours? Are you paid hourly? Or even salary? ... market research, surveys and trends

Over the past few years the IRS has been noticing a significant increase in the hiring of independent contractors.  With looser tax and payment regulations over independent contractors, this can be seen as a cheaper alternative to hiring as an employee.  Many of these cases put “independent contractors” in a position to essentially be employees, just called a contractor.  These cases of misclassified workers lead to fines, payment of back taxes, and increased workplace monitoring. A new bill slowly making its way through Congress would amend and modify the IRS rules relating to the treatment of individuals as ... market research, surveys and trends

FedEx Ground vs. UPS: Two Worldviews, Independent Contractor or ...
The differences between these two companies and their methods of doing business are stark, and observers are watching with interest as the competing worldviews shake out into measurable results with the passing of time. FedEx has had incredible success in the last several years since they scooped in to fill the void that was created by the UPS Teamsters strike in 1997. At the time UPS laid off 10,000 workers when package volume plummeted and FedEx bought RPS (a ground package delivery service based in Pittsburgh) as a result. RPS was based on a contractor model using independent contractors to deliver packages rather than ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

The question of whether an individual is working as an independent contractor or an employee is not a new one. A study in 1996 showed that between 1988 and 1996, 90 percent of court cases challenging independent contractor status resulted in the IRS classifying the workers as employees, not contractors, forcing taxpayers to come up with over $751 million in back taxes and penalties. Shortly after these findings were released, President Clinton signed the Small Business Job Protection Act so that the burden of proof resided with the IRS, meaning the IRS had to prove that someone was an employee, rather than the employer having to ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Independent Contractor vs. Employee Violation? (help!)? - Yahoo ...
I am supposedly considered an independent contractor because I signed a form saying so. However, I along with my fellow independent contractors have been suspecting that our employer is using us, but we were too afraid to lose our job to say anything. But now I have nothing to lose!

For instance, everyday I have to answer to an employer and they tell me when I can and cannot work, etc. But like an independent contractor, I do not receive health benefits, unemployment benefits, and I do not have taxes taken out of my check. But I thought ...
