Court reporters are statutorily not employees

It was brought to my attention by a former EDD tax auditor and CPA from the firm of Wubbels & Duffy that the following CUIC Code might have proven useful during the time of my EDD audit:

'Court reporters are statutorily NOT employees... as a matter of black-letter law which could have made this all go away.'

'630. Notwithstanding subparagraph (C) of paragraph (1) of subdivision (c) of Section 621 or Section 13004, 'employment' does not include service as a transcriber of depositions, court proceedings, and hearings performed away from the office of the person, firm, or association obligated to produce a transcript of these proceedings.'

Fighting EDD for over 3 years! Won’t back down. They want to change my entire industry of professional healthcare consultants as ICs ( industry standard for over 40 years) now all of a sudden we are employees ( against our will!).
