My question involves independent contractors in the state of: nj
The company I contract to requires me to ba available 6 days a week. They expect me to show up between 7 and 9 to recieve work for the day. They do not allow me to advertize my company in any way including having mt phone number on my business vehicle. They require my work to be done by the carpet and rug instatutes standards. They stop giving contractors work if they dont buy supplies from them. They fail to notify if there is work for the week leaving only a 15 hour window if there will be no work the following day. This keeps me from being able to schedule something else to do. They have an employee that comes to our jobsites and checks up on us. They want us to wear their company shirts and give bad reports if we dont. Recently they required us to get out of state home improvement contractors licences. If we do not wont to work out of state they say they just wont use us anymore. This is the ansewer to all inquarries about our mistreatment "we just wont use you anymore". Basicly they controll every aspect of my job and i believe i am an employee but i dont know what to do about it.
