So my girlfriend just recently got a job offer for a company that is requesting a background check. About 2 years ago she worked for a company that hired her as a 1099 for tax purposes supposedly. She started off working there 5 days a week, 8 hours a day, but after about a month they started to tell her to come in when they needed projects completed. After a couple of months of not receiving projects, she emailed them saying she no longer wanted to work for them.
She is now worried that the employment background check will show that she worked for the company for less time than she put on her resume, because of the lack of work she received from them. She put her end date on her resume as the day she sent the email that she was quitting, so she is worried that her new employer will think she is lying.
Also, is not telling a company you were hired as a 1099 bad? I'm not sure how employment background checks work, but is this something she should tell them before filling starting the background check and just submitting the 1099 to them?
Sorry for so many questions, she's just a little panicked now and I want to help her out.
