Contractual Agreement


Asked on Jan 26, 2022

Hi there. My boss has me as a 1099 employee. Is she legally allowed to give us a contract that I have to sign?

I am a hairstylist. I pay my own taxes every year as a self employed person. Yet my boss sets rules and takes 50% of my commission. I have no idea if any of what she’s doing is legal.

I would need a lot more info to answer this question.. is she directing how you do your job? Is there a contractor agreement in place? Just having you sign a contract is not illegal, however.
