I worked for a tax company for 1 year. When tax season began, I was working 60-70 hours a week this year. My employer told me I was an independent contractor and issued a 1099 last year even though I was an employee. I was paid $10 per hour and employer refused to pay me overtime, refused to pay commission promised.

Overtime was approved by the supervisor for work that needed to be done and no one else knew how to do it. I was also told that the overtime would be paid to me over a period of time rather than as it was earned. I accumulated approx. $3,000 in less than 3 months just in overtime and was only paid about $600 of it. Immediately after the specific task I was working on was completed, I was terminiated for working overtime and I still have not been paid my overtime. I was terminated 7/13/07.
