They are NUTS

Found this online, could only imagine what they pay. The best part is according to their requirements you are not an independent contractor but an employee.
Must check in multiple times a day and need to verify with your smartphone.

Some body send that to the IRS, I'm sure they'd just LOVE to have a chit chat with that company.
One of the biggest no nos in the IRS determination of employee or legit contractor is how much control the contracting company has over the contractor.
This is completely an employee position when they exercise this much and type of control.

Professionals are people who can do their job when they don't feel like it.
Amateurs are people that can't do their job even when they do feel like it.

This is just one recent example of a whole handful that I've seen this weekend.



Apparently a whole lot of companies didn't get the memo yet that says the IRS is cracking down on mis-classification of employees.

Professionals are people who can do their job when they don't feel like it.
Amateurs are people that can't do their job even when they do feel like it.

Actually it is possible to contract work for an hourly compensation rate as long as the other tests for being a contractor are adhered to.

I have done this on a few projects where it is impossible to accurately estimate a price due to unforeseen conditions.
