Can my employer pay me as a 1099 employee?
Asked by: lpliskin
My wife works Mon through Fri. 7am to 1 at a pet resort with dogs boarding and daycare dogs. Her employer informed her that she is a 1099 contract employee and is responsible for self employment taxes and that they do not provide any benefits. The no benefits part is ok because this is just a job for her to have some money of her own, but I am not sure if they can pay all their employees as 1099 workers. Is this legal? Can they do that?

- not a contractor but on 1099 by employer
