1099 Contractor Misclassifications

1099 Contractor Misclassifications

The Noble Law Firm provides legal services to workers who find themselves trapped in the “gig economy” through improper employee misclassification. A patchwork of Federal and State laws make it illegal for employers to misclassify employees as contractors and wrongfully deprive them of compensation, benefits and rights. Contact us today to learn more and schedule a consultation.

Our employment attorneys are experienced in 1099 contractor misclassification litigation, and have successfully asserted claims on behalf of employees who were misclassified as contractors for:

  • Failure to provide employee benefits
  • Failure to pay minimum wage or overtime wages
  • Reimbursement of self-employment taxes paid by misclassified workers
  • Declaratory and injunctive relief to obtain proper classification as an employee

Sometimes our clients can achieve greater litigation success by pursuing commercial claims as independent contractors than they could by seeking proper classification as an employee. The Noble Law Firm’s attorneys have deep knowledge and experience in commercial litigation, and can help contractors choose the best possible litigation strategy to promote their interests.

Illegal, toxic, and unethical workplace behaviors marginalize employees. We offer legal advice and representation to help you restore your dignity, defend your compensation, and move towards closure. If you believe you have been misclassified by your employer in a 1099 contractor misclassification, contact our employment law firm today.


The Noble Law offers consultations and legal advice for employment issues at our Triangle and Charlotte offices, as well as video conferencing for remote clients.
