Re: Benefits for Long Term Contractor - It Software Engineer in a Major Financial Com
If you were an independent contractor (i.e.: self employed), if you have any recourse would be based on your contract. If your statement of "any benefit" is referring to unemployment insurance, then no as they would not have paid into the UI fund since you were an independent contractor.
I am not an attorney and any advice is not to be construed as legal advice. You might even want to ignore my advice. Actually, there are plenty of real attorneys that you might want to ignore as well.
