As a part-time and on-call dealer exchange driver, can my employer decide to make us 1099 employees?

Question Details: I am a part-time on-call dealer exchange driver for a local auto group and we have always been paid by an hourly wage and had taxes taken out now all of a sudden without notice I get a check without taxes taken out and I inquire and I'm told that we are now 1099 employees but I have never filled out a W-9 and was not even aware of this. So what do we have to do to make all this correct and be within the law?
