Right. You were employed by a third party, who then was contracted by Ford to provide work. That’s perfectly legitimate. The situation described in the article, and what I experienced firsthand is different. I was working directly for CBS, using their equipment at their offices, scheduled full time 40+ hours a week. And they labeled me a “contractor” to avoid paying any payroll taxes, or to provide me with any overtime pay or benefits. It’s wrong, and illegal.

Did you conveniently forget to mention the financial benefits which you were able to enjoy as a result of this arrangement?
