Legal Question

Asked on: 4/01/13, 12:46 pm

Hi, I own my Electrical Engineering Consulting company and I am the only employee. I am currently doing engineering work for a company that has just told me that I won't be able to continue to do work for them because of Employee Misclassification. They say that I will need to go through a staffing agency like Aerotek if I want to continue to do work for them. I don't want to do this because then I am an employee of Aerotek and they are making a lot of money off of me and I will maybe make 50% of what my company is making now from this client. Is there anything that I can do to avoid losing the business relationship that I have with them now? I will not go to work for a staffing agency, but I don't want to lose all the work from my biggest client either. What can I do so that my company can still do engineering work for this other company without them violating any laws. It feels like I am being punished for having my own company. Please help.

Thank you!
