    Agreed, although technically the only people whose opinions actual matter are those who work for federal and Nevada DOL.

    Ind. Contractors required to work set shift? Nevada

    Does this seem legal? If anyone knows for sure, I'd love a link for reference as it seems hard to find.

    Let's say a barber shop hires me as an Independent Contractor where I get paid a set commission determined by the management of the shop. Now, the management says I am required to work from 8 to 5 monday-friday so I am available for walk-ins. However, I am not paid anything for being there 8 to 5, just the commission I make IF I get a walk-in. So, I could be required to work a full shift and if I get no walk-ins or appoints for that day, I make absolutely nothing.

    To me, it seems like I am working as employee but classified as an Independent Contractor so the company could save money on hourly wages, insurance, FICA, etc.
