California Employment Law
Have California Employment Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer.
Thanks for the advice. When I took a job similar to this one before I worked this last one, I spoke to another attorney about the law and being a contractor vs. employee. That one was a contractor position, so would I be correct in saying that the job title or classification is key here? That person stated there are some 22 conditions in the California Labor Law that an employor must meet to consider a person a NONE employee. Is the fact that they're calling me an employee and covering the taxes, but nothing else, the way they can work me as an FTE but no provide benefits?
I will have no problem giving you a great review, you've provided great detail in this so far and I thank you for that, I just want to make certain I don't have a legitimate grievance her before I give up. It just seems so wrong how it went down, I have to believe something that wrong has to be protected by the laws. So maybe it's not a Labor Law issue, maybe more contract (intent) or wrongful dismissal? I know you know the law, I'm not questioning that, I'm just thinking that since I talked with my manager and his manager several times over the years about becoming an FTE and then again just recently before my release today, it just seems as though they kept me thinking I'd get the benefits they knew I wanted and they used to keep me working there thinking I'd get them someday, until I told them they needed to either hire me or I'd have to look elsewhere for a job. 3 months later I get fired. Seems wrong, am I just hoping there's justice where there isn't?
