My question involves independent contractors in the state of: CA
I was hired as a 1099 employee but my employee refused to give me a written contract that stated my duties and commission rate. Although I keep an online calendar that was shared with the office, I was told to come into the office for a set amount of hours everyday which I thought made me a W-2 employee. Everything with this company was verbal. Since I keep asking for a written contract that spelled out my duties after working one month the company decided to terminate my employment. The company did not take out any taxes from my payroll. My question is, was I really a W-2 employee and can I apply for unemployment?
