Asked on Mar 3, 2023

Are 1099 employees responsible for there own break time and lunch time?

The job im at I am a 1099 employee but they tell us when to get here when our breaks are when our lunch is and when we leave. Doesn't that technically mean that we are W2 workers?

First of all, there is no such thing as a 1099 employee. You are either an independent contractor or an employee. Second, yes, if you are being told when to take a break or have lunch, then you are probably an employee and not an independent contractor.
