In 2006 I was fired from my position of Director of Bus. Dev. and rehired 1 min later as a contractor to do the same work. I never signed a contract agreement and my company (still with them now) continued to keep me doing the same thing, they did not pay taxes anymore or health ins. or vacation but they did keep my stock option vesting. 7 months later they asked me to be an employee again. When I was made a contractor they lowered my pay by 12k a year on the base. I was devistated by this transaction and it has hurt my earning potential and career. I have been afraid to so anything because I still work for the company. Do I have any line of action that I can take?
