California Independent Contractor Disputes Attorney

You signed on as an independent contractor for a reason. Maybe you needed the flexibility. Maybe you wanted to work for more than one company at a time. Maybe you want to control the amount you can earn in a year.

Unfortunately, though, independent contractors are often abused after signing a contract by companies that see them as way to avoid paying health insurance and employer taxes. By keeping you on the job, but off their payroll, they can save substantially. By controlling your workday and preventing you from seeking additional contracts, though, they are violating your rights as an independent contractor.

“It’s all about control. A company can lay out expectations for results for an independent contractor, but they can’t control or limit your right to pursue additional opportunities that don’t conflict.” — Attorney Mark Bradley

With offices in Los Angeles and Orange County,Marlin & Saltzman, LLP, is one of California’s prominent class action litigation employment law firms. If you are an independent contractor that has lost control of your independence, talk to us. California case law has made it clear that independent contractors may be entitled to employee benefits if they can show they are treated like an employee in every regard except compensation.

I have been working with Marlin & Saltzman on my case for quite some time, and have worked closely with Jody Rosen.  She has always kept me informed on where we are on all things and what I need to do or what to expect.  A great deal of pressure has been taken off of my hands and handled by a firm that, in my opinion, has gone above and beyond taking good care of their clients!!!  I want to thank Marlin & Saltzman for all that they have helped me with.  I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this firm to anyone who is in need of legal representation. Thanks again Marlin & Saltzman, and may 2017 be a Happy New Year to all!
