#Covid19 & #Coronavirus: Working In The Time Of Plague – 1099

You Have Rights As A Worker. I Will Help Protect Them.
Denis ZilberbergMarch 19, 2020Employment Law

The subject today is 1099’ed workers. This is for California employees with labor law and employment law claims. This is a question the office has been getting:

I receive 1099 for work. Can I get unemployment benefits?

Maybe. If you wrongly were given 1099, you might get benefits. In 2019, California Legislature passed legislation which made many workers to be classified as employees when they previously were 1099’ed independent contractors.

So what should I do?

If you feel that you are truly an employee and should receive benefits, make a claim with the Employment Development Department. You can do this through their website.

You might also have a civil claim for being denied the benefits of employment, such as overtime pay, etc.
