  • Independent Contractor Connecticut

    Anybody know if in connecticut you have to identify yourself to a customer as an independent contractor.

    This company saying it's illegal for me to identify myself as an independent contractor and give my phone number to contact for issues.

    There are no federal laws about that, I am certain.

    I am not in Connecticut and don't know their requirements, but I would find it very strange for an independent contractor to be prohibited (by law) from telling a customer that you are an independent contractor and for you to be prohibited from giving the customer your phone number.

    Heckfire, I EXPECT to get the number of folks doing work for me so that I can call them.

    The company you are working for is trying to pull a fast one, for some reason.

    That is not a good sign.

    What do you do? Often, independent contractors are not that, but employees and that could open up another messy can of worms.

        Uh oh.

        You are probably not an independent contractor, but an employee (of that repair shop).

        As I posted earlier, this could get messy.
