An independent contractor is supposed to be free to accomplish the work as he sees fit, on his own schedule, and with the methods he chooses., as long as the desired end result is achieved. Also, he cannot be required to work exclusively for one company.

This I.C. model works well for personal trainers who schedule directly with the clients and do their own programming specifically for each client. Obviously doesn't fly when you hire a coach who must always coach 5am, 6am, 9am, 11am, 12pm, who is forbidden from coaching for your competitor across the street and who must coach what you have programmed for the day.

No, it's actually saying you are less than an employee, i.e. you have no workman's comp or unemployment protection, and you have to pay all your FICA rather than the employer paying for half. So many employers try to bend the rules and classify workers as independent contractors when they're not, so they don't have to pay those extra expenses, but if they are caught they're in for big penalties.
