    I have come across a lot of sites that say you are independent or that you are not considered a full employee, some places might have a reputation of cutting hours to keep you under the radar. Do you have any protection if you decide to work for a place like this?

    I don’t think so. If you are working for someone else, like part-time employees at restaurants and stores, you are at the mercy of the employer. He/she decides what your hours are and you really have no say, other than to look for work elsewhere.

    I don’t think there is any protection. That’s why I think it’s important to have more than one job going all the time. An independent contractor means you are not part of the company. Most of the time you are hired because it is cheaper than a full time employee and they can let you go whenever they want.
