That depends

If you are meeting a broker, or doing an eviction or some other task that under normal circumstances, must coordinated with other people, companies or crews. No, that would not be "setting work hours" in any sense. Independent Contractors have to work within reasonable time constraints and accommodate the schedules of others.
However if they are setting daily regular hours or constructing you daily schedule, that's another matter.

Yep same thing with the Cash for Keys work orders. The time is set to meet the owner

When determinations are made in regards to IC/Employee issues
It is the totality of everything involved not just one or two elements.
I think that is the part most overlook....the totality of direction and control.
Regardless of the contract there will always be circumstances that dictate a variance from the written word

If this is the only example of control you have, I would say that you arent an employee. But, if you have other examples in addition to this, you may be an employee.

Hey now, slow down there a bit and take a couple deep breathes.
Punctuation is your friend! Now lets try that again.
