To determine your employment status, that is, employee or independent contractor, I looked at the folloing link.
Who is going to determine my employment status? Can DLSE do that after file a wage claim?
Thank you for your answer. As I said in the very first question, I have signed subcontract agreement after 2 months of W2 employment. Payment term was also stated in the very first question. Since then Solugence paid me as follows. As you see below, I got paid 4/16 - 4/30 payment last Friday.
Should I file a wage and overtime claim with DLSE? Please advise.
OK. It is down to the question of whether I was an employee or an independent contractor. In your very first answer, you said, "My subcontractor agreement is "Probably not" legal." If it is not legal, can I still claim a wage and overtime claim with DLSE for the period of 11/1/2010 - 5/13/2011?
