My question involves independent contractors in the state of: California
I know for fact that I've been working with a company for two years now being misclassified as an Independent Contractor when I should be on payroll as an employee. I get paid hourly, tasks are assigned to me, have set hours, and work in the office. Clearly what they have been doing is illegal, but I've put up with it because I've been unsuccessful in finding other employment. Now this job is ceasing to exist soon and I need to know how I should proceed in possibly securing unemployment benefits. Appreciate the help in being advised in what my first step should be.
