Can 1099 Workers Get Overtime? What Can I Do if I have been Called an Independent Contractor (Paid on a 1099) When I Should be Deemed to be an Employee (w-2 Worker?)

Only Employees Paid on a w-2 Basis Are Entitled to Overtime - However, So Called "Independent Contractors" Can Be Reclassified as a w-2 Employee Under State and Federal Laws Protecting Pennsylvania Employees

If You Have Earned Overtime - You May Get Reclassified
1099 workers (i.e. independent contractors) are not entitled to overtime pay.  However, it is a common practice for employers to intentionally "misclassify" employees who should be paid on a w-2 basis as independent contractors paid on a 1099 basis.

If you have been so misclassified, then you are entitled to overtime if you can convince the appropriate authorities that you should be treated as a w-2 employee.

We help clients do that on a contingent fee basis.
