Are you a paralegal who needs clarification on the difference between an employee or an independent contractor? Have you ever referred to yourself as a "1099 employee"? Does your employer have you working "as a 1099 employee" because it's easier? Or, because you're their only employee? Have you ever seen an advertisement for a paralegal job that reads suspiciously like you'd be an employee, but they throw in that 1099 at the last minute? Are you wondering if you are misclassified?
