What is the difference between an employee and an independent contractor?


There’s a difference between an employee and an independent contractor under the laws of the State of Florida. Typically, an employer that tells you when to do a job, when to leave, what to do, how to do it, and if he provides you with the tools to do your job you are his employee. If you are simply asked to complete a service and left to your own devices how to do it, then you’re an independent contractor.

There are many instances where employers will attempt to have you classified as an independent contractor in order to either avoid taxes or some other situation. It’s important that you seek legal advice to understand your rights as to whether you’re actually an employee or an independent contractor.

You pay NO FEES or COSTS unless we settle or win your case!
