I work for a company that has been losing business. I was down graded to part-time hourly. This is a home health agency and I know my situation is legal, but they have changed all current employees to contractors. The company doesn't call them Independant Contractors. The company controls the schedule, all paperwork filled out by worker's is our paperwork...the company just is not going to pay the taxes, workman's comp, unemployment, liability insurance, ect. The worker's are still paid hourly but make more per hour than they did before. They have been told that they need their own liability insurance, but it is unclear if the company is going to demand proof of insurance be provided to continue to work. Is this legal to change a current employee to a contractor? I feel very badly for our workers and feel, in my heart, that this is wrong.
