What you are requesting is extremely complicated. Different states are more or less strict on the issue of 1099 workers (legal termed, "independent contractors").

I can help you figure out your liability in various jurisdictions, but it would be quite costly to do so, because, I would have to research the law of each state jurisdiction in which you operate, and compare it to the exact nature of the services and contracts that you have agreed to with your workers.

If that's something that you are interested in doing, I will send you an additional services offer, and we can discuss it offline.
