I am an editor and scheduler for a mystery shopping company as an independent contractor. This company is virtual, so we all work from home. I have been there for eight years. I get paid by the edit and or schedule but the company has training on how to edit and a timeline on when to finish. Also the relationship between the schedulers and editors are permenant in nature. The company does have employees in upper management, but has made comments in the past that she likes to keep the employee count below 10 so as to avoid certain lawsuits. In my opinion from what I have read, we should be classified as employees, and this company is getting away without paying state, federal and workers comp taxes. What is your opinion?
