Employee Misclassification In San Diego

Worker misclassification is a situation that arises when a boss, organization or other employer wrongly classifies an employed worker as an independent contractor, either accidentally or deliberately. For workplaces and companies, classifying workers as independent contractors comes with numerous benefits in terms of financial savings and bypassing the need to offer a full employment package. This might include things like wage and working hours protection, standard employee rights such as holiday time and maternity or paternity leave, and the potential to sign up for company health insurance and dental coverage, among other things.

You can learn more about the specific differences between an employee and independent contractor here.

If you have been misclassified by an employer and as a result, have been denied your standard employee rights, contact Walker Law now for assistance.
