The company I am working for is paying me with a 1099 form when I believe I should be treated as an employee with a W-2. I'm an outside sales representative that works exclusively for this company and am required to go to company meetings. I file my own taxes, I do not get compensated for gasoline, no employee benefits. I pay for my tools for work, etc. Is all this illegal? If so, can I sue?
