Customer Question

I worked as a dog groomer under the understanding that I was a indecent contracted in Oregon . However there was several things that I felt did not fall under the independent contractor law. I have noe been let let go and wonder what to do next I did file a claim eith unemployment even though I know as a independent contractor I would not qualify but if the find that I actually was treated as a independent contractor and mor like a employee then I would think that I should be able to collect unemployment and that the shout have to pay my taxes on what the paid me.
