Commonly Asked Questions

What is the difference between an employee and an independent contractor?

The distinction between an employee and an independent contractor lies primarily in the degree of control and independence in the working relationship. Employees typically work under the direct supervision and control of the employer, following set hours and processes. Independent contractors, on the other hand, have more freedom to determine how and when to complete their work. Misclassification of employees as independent contractors can lead to significant legal issues and financial penalties.

Can an employer change the terms of my employment contract without my consent?

Generally, an employer cannot unilaterally change the terms of an employment contract without the employee’s consent. Any modifications to employment agreements should be mutually agreed upon by both parties. If your employer attempts to change your contract terms without your agreement, you may have legal recourse.
