If at any point any of my answers aren’t clear please don’t hesitate to ask for clarification.

I speak that kind of french too so don't worry about it.

Is there a specific question with which I could assist?

Expert:  Dwayne B. replied 1 year ago.

I'm not following, you're a physician and your employer had you listed and paid you as a 1099?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Expert:  Dwayne B. replied 1 year ago.

Why do you believe it was illegal? I'm not arguing, I just know there are some situations where docs can be 1099s.

Expert:  Dwayne B. replied 1 year ago.

We can't reveal any personal info on here. There's somewhere on your screen where it shows verification though.

What is the DEA number you just gave?

Expert:  Dwayne B. replied 1 year ago.

The website requires us to remain anonymous (other than our screen name) so that they can be sure everything runs through them. That's to make sure the customer gets all their questions answered and not someone on here just trying to drum up business for themselves.

Expert:  Dwayne B. replied 1 year ago.

If you don't mind me asking, if your husband's an attorney why isn't he assisting you?

Expert:  Dwayne B. replied 1 year ago.

Are you still there?

Expert:  Dwayne B. replied 1 year ago.

I am about to go offline for the day and it looks like you've left so I'm going to opt out and let someone else assist when you return.

Expert:  Law Educator, Esq. replied 1 year ago.
Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Your previous expert left and I am a different contributor.
Please understand, we cannot help you unless you tell us the whole story together, not just half sentence statements. Please tell us the whole situation and why you believe it is illegal for you to have been a 1099 independent contractor, because many doctors are independent contractors and it is quite legal.
You have to tell us the whole story with all of the details, including what you have done to try to resolve your dispute, for us to provide you information you are seeking.
