Hi, I was a contractor at a client site for 8.5 years. For the first 6 years I was on H1 visa and then I was working through a vendor. The client didn't hire me or treat me as an Employee

I worked in the state of California. During my tenure with the client, I never got any benefits. I provided IT services to this client. Close to the end of 8.5 years I was offered to go full time with an offshore partner of this client, the pay offer from offshore company was bad. My choice is to pick that option or leave. Even though I went full time with offshore company, I had to quit due to unrealistic expectations. Is there anything I can do for this unfair treatment?

I am sorry, but I do not understand what you are referring to as an unfair treatment.

Could you ask specific question?

Thank you for your cooperation,

it's unfair treatment. There are laws that a client can't keep you as a long term contractor. I am not exactly sure of the duration, but I know that there is a time frame. I worked at this client for 8.5 years with no benefits like vacation, bonus, over time, health insurance, Immigration support etc.The following link may provide some reference to my question:
