Re: Contract Labor Issues Will We Have to Convert to W-2's
what happens if they want to leave in the middle of a shift? Can they just leave? Can they have somebody they choose (somebody you may not have ever met) take their place? Do you make a schedule for the guys? Do you ever tell anybody they have to work some given day or time? What if three guys decided they wanted to swap their shifts; would they have to have your permission?
I really believe you are attempting to minimize your claimed control over the guys. It doesn't matter here other than you won't get as accurate answer as might be able to be given.
I am not an attorney and any advice is not to be construed as legal advice. You might even want to ignore my advice. Actually, there are plenty of real attorneys that you might want to ignore as well.
