A: You should contact a Pennsylvania employment lawyer directly to discuss your situation, as whether a worker can be properly classified as an independent contractor depends on a variety of different factors and will be highly dependent on the specific facts of their situation. Labels alone (such as switching them to 1099 on payroll) do not govern whether the worker can be properly classified as an independent contractor.
