In other words, you don't make the decisions - you just do what you're told to do and you're grateful to have a job. Perhaps you shouldn't feel so grateful because your employer caused you to incur an additional 15% self employment tax you probably don't owe in addition to the taxes you do owe.
You are not alone because more and more employers are doing this to avoid paying social security tax and Florida unemployment taxes.
