 What's the issue?  I'm guessing employee vs. independent contractor classification.

That's what it sounds like to me to seg.

cumprido - if you're an employee and they all of a sudden want to put you on a 1099 as an independent contractor, chances are that you are really still an employee, and they are just trying to avoid the employer payroll taxes.

employers are allowed to re-organize changing hired sales people (for example) into hired contractors.

that means your w-2 becomes a 1099. you are also now responsible to pay expenses, taxes, etc.

nothing wrong with it imo.
