A: Either you are an independent contractor or an employee - you can't be both at the same time. And whether you are one or the other depends on the details of your job, not what you and/or your boss decides you are. You should give me a call to discuss this. If you are actually an employee, you are probably owed a lot more money. My number is 516.304.5357.
