"I was hired as an independent contractor engineer for a project at a local high tech firm. I was supposed to be paid $65.00 per hour for four months. After one month, they told me they didn't like my work and told me to submit my invoice for the work I had done. When I did, they said it was "too high" and offered me $0.25 on the dollar. When I met Nora, she said that based on the work that I did, I was actually an employee, even though I had signed a contract stating that I was an independent contractor. Therefore it didn't matter if the employer "didn't like" my work. We attended a binding arbitration and I was awarded wages for all hours worked, plus penalties and attorney's fees. The employer then called Nora and actually thanked her for teaching them a valuable lesson about independent contractors."
