Hello,

I would like to know if it is legal to subcontract a job as an employee of a company to independent contractors- example. I have a job as an employee with a company that withholds taxes from my paycheck- could I subcontract this job to an independent contractor?

thank you

Happens a lot in the Dilbert comic strip....


In reality, well, consider if the Lakers hire Lebron and he wants to subcontract out to someone else. Actually, lately the Lakers might go for that...

Not necessarily. A person could feasibly work, for example, for 5 different temp agencies and thus receive 5 w2's
