So the specifics are as follows. My spouse got a job as a independent contractor for an online job. They didn't work it much, and when I didn't have a 'real job' (for a matter of years), I worked the job. I did the max hours a week, got paid, performed at their standards, etc. But of course it was all under my spouses name.
the job was as an independent contractor, so no taxes were taken out.
Obviously "I" didn't work there, but without putting it on my resume I have a huge gap in employment. It's kind of difficult to contact the company (though I am going to try contacting them acting as an employer verifying employment), so who knows if a job I am applying to will ever find out it wasn't "me" that worked there.
So my question is what do I do about putting/not putting this on a resume?
