My question involves criminal law for the state of: CA
I'm a 1099 IC for a sales company in California. I came into their office today and found a 1099 Tax Letter in my box from one of our partner companies (addressed to me) that was opened, and written on the front was "scan and put in (my name) folder".
This doesn't seem right to me and I'm curious as to why they are doing this with something that personal? Is this even legal?
Edit: They do this with pretty much every piece of mail that comes in. I'm not sure if they scan everything but I do know that I've had other letters opened before I receive them personally. This was the first one that had specific instructions to make a copy of that I'm aware of.
