Q1: Can I file a complaint against a former employer for not sending me a 1099 form for 2015?
A1: Well, there is no formal procedure to do this, you can write the IRS a letter with all the relevant information for the employer and indicate that they did not send you a Form 1099-Misc if they were required to.
Q2: Is the employer required to send me a form as a contract worker?
A2: If he or she paid you $600 or more, the answer is yes. If you did not earn that amount, then the answer is no. Whether you receive a 2099-misc or not, the income is supposed to be reported.
You can refer to the Form 1099-Misc instructions for more detailed information.
