Can by boss give me a 1099 and then change his mind and give me a W-2?
Asked Feb 7, 2010, 11:29 AM
I worked for over a year for an attorney who classified me as "contract" employee. Under the law, I was not a contract employee, but I needed the job and kept my mouth shut. The attorney is suffering from early onset Alzheimers and I quit the job. Now I can't get a correct 1099 and I've asked for a correct 1099 three times now. He has filed all three 1099's with the IRS and NOW I just received a W-2 with the income reported and purportedly he paid the SS tax and Medicare tax. What am I supposed to do now. The W-2 is still wrong by about $780 - help!!
