1. What State do you work/reside?
2. Are you 18 years of age, or older?
3. By definition of your employment status (contract) are you
a.) An: Independent Contractor
b.) A bona fide employee of this Business?
If you are reticent about providing information to the above inquiries,
you may otherwise wish to contact your State's: Department of Labor (DOL) offices.
They'll be able to furnish you with pertinent information/guidance regarding, among others:
-Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)
-Wage & Hour Division
-Employee Classification/Misclassification as Independent Contractors Since it sounds like you work at a "Smaller Business"...
-When was the last time you approached 'managment' about a wage-increase?
-What preparations have you made for yourself (going back to the same ol' grind/wage; resignation) if:
Asking for a raise...ruffles a few feathers (even up to a possible termination)?.
I've seen cases where it's been handy to have ones local:
Civil Rights Commission (CRC) phone number nearby<<<("Tough row to hoe", though...IMO.)
