My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: NY
My husband is working for a company and is definitely an employee. His schedule is set for him, etc. However, he gets paid weekly, and instead of getting a 1099 at the end of the year (which would still be a misclassification of what he is) he will get a K1, which from what I can find is for partners.
I have no idea what they’re trying to pull in doing this, or what his recourse is, other than to quit, which isn’t exactly an option either.
They’ve been doing this as common practice with all their employees for a long time as far as we have heard.
So I guess I’m wondering- any idea why they’re doing this, what the negative impact on us may be, and what, if any recourse we have against them.
