Verify your 1099 Workers’ Status

Verify your independent contractors have a legitimate business and satisfy CA and Federal law.

Your customized got1099? report includes detailed information on your independent contractor’s business data, licensing, EIN, corporate or LLC status, social media and website or other advertising. Our reports are developed based on years of experience with many government audits.  These audits target companies who may have misclassified their workers as independent contractors.

Avoid costly problems by getting our report before hiring your next independent contractor or, before EDD looks into your worker classification.

With our comprehensive reports and monthly alerts, you can be secure that you will be prepared to defend your workers’ classification against a government audit or inquiry.

The Power of Information to Make Better Decisions

Construction business owners are at high risk

California EDD is looking for 1099 contractors whom they feel should now be classified as W-2 workers.  Since AB-5 and the Gig Work law went into effect, businesses who work with outside contractors are particularly vulnerable. Use our tool to make the right decision BEFORE California EDD comes knocking.

Not every 1099 needs to be reclassified

Throughout California, business owners are throwing their hands up and reclassifying all their workers. This is not always smart, necessary, or advantageous to your workers. STOP. Use our tool and make an informed decision as to the status of your 1099 workers and their legitimacy in that classification.
