Reclaim Your Worker Rights

Print Reclaim Your Worker Rights

What’s the difference between an independent contractor and an employee? And does it really matter? It turns out it really does! Getting misclassified could mean paying almost double in taxes and losing benefits you’re entitled to, including Social Security and unemployment compensation.

To help workers understand how to avoid misclassification, Philadelphia Legal Assistance’s Taxpayer Support Clinic collaborated with CUP and designers Mike Tully and Peter Gamlen to create Reclaim Your Worker Rights! The guide breaks down different tax forms for employees and independent contractors and explains how to avoid misclassification. It folds out into a poster that shows workers how to fight back if they’ve been misclassified, and how to get support to claim the benefits they deserve.
