Representation for Independent Contractors injured at O’Hare Airport
The Workers Compensation Act requires Employers to maintain workman's compensation insurance as a way to protect employees who are injured on the job. Employers strategically attempt to avoid claims against their insurance policy by asserting an independent contractor is not an employee. If you are deemed to be an independent contractor, you may lose the ability to obtain important benefits, including medical benefits, disability benefits, and lost wages.
At Airports, there are thousands of workers and an individual's employment status may vary depending on the type of position and the nature of their work. If you or your loved one has been injured on the job and the individual receives compensation as a 1099 employee, you should speak with an experienced attorney to determine your best course of action. The mere fact that you receive a 1099 form each year does not automatically equate to status as an independent contractor. There are a variety of factors that the court will consider to determine your employee status. There are no particular hard and fast rules that determine your employment status. Instead, the facts and circumstances of your case are crucial. Contact Newland & Newland, LLP for your independent assessment today.
