Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello and thank you for contacting us. This is Dwayne B. and I’m an expert here and looking forward to assisting you today. If at any point any of my answers aren’t clear please don’t hesitate to ask for clarification. Also, I can only answer the questions you specifically ask and based on the facts that you give so please be sure that you ask the questions you want to ask and provide all necessary facts. Please note: This is general information for educational purposes only and is not legal advice. No specific course of action is proposed herein, and no attorney-client relationship or privilege is formed by speaking to an expert on this site. By continuing, you confirm that you understand and agree to these terms.
Is there a specific question with which I could assist?
So what is your question?
For what purpose? Are you worried about the taxes, are you wanting to sue the person for stealing business, etc?
The only other thing I could suggest would be 1) any witnesses such as others she applied for which she applied for work or did work and 2) any advertisement, including business cards or a website.
The big piece of evidence is proof as to each of the factors on the IRS form. That is considered the "gold standard" for this type of case. What I've done for clients facing the same type situation is put together a notebook for the judge with a list of the factors at the beginning, then a separate section for each of the factors setting forth the evidence you have to support each one. That makes it easy for the judge to find everything and rule in your favor.
Sometimes the big issue isn't having the evidence but in getting the judge to understand how the evidence applies to your case.
I do appreciate the compliment, but unfortunately the experts all sign an agreement that we won' take work from the customers on the website. If you decide you need a lawyer though come back to this thread, it locks open once you issue your Positive Rating, and I'll give you a website that is the best way to hire an attorney.
If your question has been answered then I'd offer my best wishes to you and ask that you please not forget to leave a Positive Rating so I receive credit for my work.
Of course, please feel free to ask any follow up questions in this thread. I want to be sure that all of your questions are answered. In addition, once you issue your Positive Rating the question will lock open and no longer time out so you can come back to it anytime in the future if you think of any follow ups.
