    Or is the contractor in collusion?
    I have to say, as a contractor I would have blown the whiistle on this. How I look at it is this:  If I have to play by rules, eveyone else has to play by the rules!!! why tie one of my hands behind my back and then ask me to compete with these people?
    I'v had my butt almost in a sling when I was trying to do the right thing---asked for ID and got it. How do I know whats false? I proceeded on good faith, was extemely lied to by that person. I did not LIKE that!
    And he set me up for what could have been real legal problems. It was a real eyeopener for me, I went to great lengths to employ people only legally after that.

    The setup you describe is a ticking time bomb----something goes wrong and someone gets REALLY MEGA Screwed!! For God sake don't let it be you!!!
    If illegals are hired knowingly then the liability insurance is canceled. If false ID is being used I'd bet money some of it is identity theft.
    if the employer is paying people under the table he's setting himself up for fraud in a variety of places.

    Best staying away from this---this is one of the reasons I got into Home Inspection---I never want to hire anyone again.

    Happy just to be alive

      but those people I see taking foreign vacations and buying nice houses all hire illegal workers. Comp and SS paid on all, but with a wink and a nod.

      You can get a tax ID number from the IRS for tax purposes. IRS is disconnected from all else.

      The whole system isn't good and needs fixing. There are problems on so many levels.

      How big is your personal carbon footprint?
