I've been working at a place for over 6 months now, and my workplace has paid my hours with a government grant. Now they are eligible for up to 12 weeks more funding from another source, but it would require that I write them an invoice, every two weeks.
I told my boss I was unsure because I have been paying into Unemployment insurance, which would be very helpful for me when I have to look for another job.
My boss got back to me a few weeks after this and said if I write the invoice they will continue to give me pay stubs as they always have been and will have the Unemployment insurance and other deductions taken off for me. She also said they will write me a record on employment when they let me go.
However I'm still worried because it is possible that my boss and/or book keeper could get fired. What would happen in that case? Since I'm paying my deductions and still getting pay stubs I would assume I'm still entitled to unemployment insurance and other benefits, but would the fact that I've written them invoices mean I'm a contractor(thus forfeiting those benefits?).
