My question involves independent contractors in the state of: NY
My husband works as a 1099 employee for a repo company and is paid per repossesion he completes....He is presently owed a total of $7000 in back pay which represents approximately 1 1/2 months pay....The employer continues to promise payment as soon as they are paid by the finance companies that hire them for the repos....My husband continues to believe these promises and from time to time even receives $1000 or so here and there while still working every night as usual so the debt is really never fully paid as more pay is earned each night...
Where do we stand here? Husband is afraid to rock the boat with the employer for fear of losing his job....Our bills are delinquent and money is very tight for us with only my salary to pay the family bills.
What can we do????
