I work as an interpreter in Minnesota. Technically, they state I'm an independent contractor. Although, in my opinion at orientation, we were told how to do things, etc. We are also told that we are paid on a payroll type schedule, as in one time per month for all of our jobs. That said, we wouldn't be paid for our work for 2 months! I thought that on an independent contractor basis, one actually determines when they would like to be paid for services??? Or am I incorrect. It seems to me that this profession sometimes has difficulties with classifying workers.
