Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.
There is no law that inherently prohibits these things. However, the greater the degree of control the employer exercises over the worker, the more likely it becomes that the worker's classification as a contractor (rather than an employee) will be deemed improper. See here for more information. Ignore the fact that the linked publication is supplied by the State of Oregon as the publication is summarizing the IRS standards for determining classification which apply the exact same in all 50 states.
You may wish to argue to your employer that by imposing the level of control on the time you work and the timeliness of the work you perform, that they are potentially risking your contractor status. It would be prudent not to make this point in a threatening type way but more in an informative type way that is likely to trigger a constructive dialogue rather than aggression and animosity.
I hope this this addresses your concerns.
