Have You Got Compensation When You Are an Independent Contractor? in Los Angeles, CA

1 of 1

When an employer classifies its employees as independent contractors, they gain several big advantages, including not having to pay payroll taxes or comply with minimum wage or overtime requirements. Even when you get  injured at work, whether or not you qualify for worker’s comp benefits may hinge on whether or not you’re an employee or an independent contractor. However, some lawmakers want to see the ruling go further, adding benefits like workplace injuries, health insurance and sick days on the table for reclassified workers. 

If you have been injured at workplace, contact the Los Angeles workers compensation attorney right away to schedule a no-cost case review.

Don't Be Fooled

  • When selling, do not put your home address in your ad.
  • To avoid scams, buy and sell with people you can meet locally, in person.
  • When meeting with someone you don't know, meet in a public place. If that's not possible, have a buddy with you. Also, carry a cell phone; if you feel unsafe, you can call a trusted friend, and stay on the line.
  • Never give out financial or private information like account numbers, PayPal login, or social security number.
  • If an offer sounds too good to be true, it is. Walk away!
