Hello,

I am interested in finding out how tech writers working as independent
contractors are affected by the recent decisions the courts have made
against companies who have misclassified employees as independent
contractors. (Most notably the recent Vizcaino v. Microsoft case.)

Anyone out there notice any changes in the way companies deal with
you?

I would also be interested in knowing if you prefer working as an
independent contractor or an employee and why.

Tx for your time.

Deborah
