I hear that for every employee he has, he gets $34 per hour, he then pays the employee $13 per hour, he also pays no unemployment taxes on the employees therefore denying them the right to file for unemployment benefits......he doesnt withhold any taxes at all which causes the employees to have to pay it in on their own....i wonder....is any of this legal????? wonder what would happen to one of his workers if they was hurt on the job????? does he pay workers compensation insurance on them????

If they are independent contractors, he doesn't have to. Ask Stephen Headrick about the people that tied his lures...same story. I am sure there are many others around town who stretch the definition of contractor.

You my dear are a shit stirrer! Have you not learned yet, that everything you hear is not always true! Or are you one of those retards that believe everything you hear?!?!?!?! And YES if you are contracted out, yes it is your responsibility to do your own taxes AND YES it is legal!! I am positive the workers are informed of that before hand if this is the situation. Sounds to me like you have no clue what you are talking about and you are just trying to start a bashing topic about him! I know him and he is a good man!!!!!!! You on the other hand are just a trouble maker! How would you feel if we found out who you are and start writing trash about YOU!!!!!!!!!! I don't think you would, so just STOP!

Until you can post saying "I know for a fact", then you need to stop posting...

Your post shows you do not know how subcontractors work in TN. If the people working for him did not like it, they should post, no you.

Contract labor has very specific criteria to be met before the IRS permits an employer to claim,"contract labor". Working by the hour is not contract labor. No intention of indicating Tom does this, 13 bucks is a good wage, but the employer better be cautious about SS, Workers Comp.,and Federal Withholding. Tom is plenty intelligent enough to know the difference.

he can contract people to do labor and by doing this they are not his employees, however he cannot furnish any tools equipment or vehickles and the employees know this upfront and its their obligation to do their own benifits or responsibilities. That is why nothing is deducted from their checks because the empl.oyee would be paying most of it through witholdings.

All I can say is he talks a really good game. Then turns around and lies to make himself look good when he screws an employee. He pays them like a contractor, but does not follow the rules for claiming contract labor.
