Customer Question

If I have been considered an independent contractor, even though I am told where to go, what breaks I can have and what time I am allowed to leave am I indeed an independent contractor or an employee? This is a question I have had for 26 years working for the same Seminar Company. Are they also allowed to discontinue calling you after that many years with no notice or conversation?

from facts mentioned, you have been misclassified, and you may pursue reclassification through labor board, IRS, or initially having a lawyer negotiate a settlement with the company. As for not calling you, that is a matter of company discretion, whether an employee or a contractor.
