Former Employer Does Not Want to take takes out of my upcoming discrimination settlement

I have a pending settlement on an age discrimination case against my former employer. The settlement agreements states that 80% of the settlement should be treated as back wages and therefore should be taxed. However, my former employer does not want to take any taxes out (I assume because he does not want to pay FICA) and wants to write 1 check and have me 1099 it. I do not want to do that. Do I have options or do I have to get paid they way that the former employer wants to pay?
