A 1099 contractor can't collect unemployment. The person using a 1099 subcontractor is not considered an employer. Therefore they don't pay UE or WC on the 1099 subcontractor. They also don't withhold FICA, FIT or SSI. That responsibilty falls on the individual and can get himself in a buttload of trouble if he fails to file it on his taxes.
