It's close, since my understanding is she told you when to work, how much to charge, etc. Still, employment taxes are going to be paid by someone. The main issue seems to be getting paid. I don't see how this relates to the issuance of a 1099. Whether you were self employed or not, if she collected the money, she has tp pay you either commission per client, or hourly wage.
What tax year is the 1099 issued. These things are submitted in January of the year following the tax year. You wouldn't have gotten one for 2011 labor, and 2010 is really running late.
If you were self employed, by the way, unemployment is kind of a dead issue in most states.
Get your documentation together and drop in on your state department of labor at their local office.
