Can I run after my former employer for fraud for not reporting my employment with the Dept. of Labor and the IRS

Asked over 1 year ago - New Hyde Park, NY

I worked as as aid and was paid under the Long Term Care Insurance policy of my employer. At the start of my employment in 2010 I was made to fill up an Invoice for Independent Health Care Provider from the Insurance Company submitting also my SSN. Recently I was "fired". I asked for W2 but my employer sent me 1099 filling only Box 7- declaring me a non employee. I claimed for Unemployment Benefit but was denied because my employer did not have a record with the Dept. of Labor.

    Answered . I recommend that you ask for a hearing at unemployment. Whether you are an employee or not will be investigated if you appeal the denial.
