Misclassifying employees as independent contractors is one of the more common ways that employers steal employee wages. If you are classified as an independent contractor, then you are not owed overtime, meal periods, expenses reimbursed, etc.
The truth of the matter is almost all workers are employees, not independent contractors and that an agreement between the parties cannot establish an independent contractor status. That is determined by law, based primarily on whether the employer has control over the work to be done and the manner in which it is performed.
