I have a part time side job that I've been doing for a number of years. I found it through a social media group. Since being added to their roster I have been getting regular frequent work (a few shifts each month). Payment is made into my bank account through a 3rd party system. I don't have any contracts or paperwork and I've never received a T4 or similar forms. I work at different locations, none of which are owned or managed by my employer.
My manager recently informed me that she's been promoted and someone else will be managing me. It feels strange that she is my only point of contact. I asked her for the address of the company's office and she said there isn't one in this province. (I know where the company's headquarters are, because they show up on Google.) Also sometimes when my manager isn't working there is some sort of substitute contact, so the company seems reasonably well structured.
All I know about my employer is
- The company's name
- My manager's name, email and phone number
What else should I know about an employer? I guess my concern is if something happens to my manager or they are acting unreasonably, I would like another point of contact within the company. How should I request this?
In response to the comments, I am paying tax. I don't know what I said that made it sound like I'm trying to avoid it? My manager said that when I was hired I was considered a contractor. I suspect if I challenge it, I could prove that I'm an employee as I don't submit invoices or set my work hours etc. The company doesn't take tax off my pay off but I still declare it as income so I pay tax.
