Independent contractor or a employee?

  1. I work for a company that covers many different states but I work in Florida. I am known as a "independent contractor" with this company and I carry my own malpractice insurance. I have recently done some reading about what a "true" meaning of independent contractor details and it doesn't seem to fit my companies meaning so I was just wondering if I'm missing something here. My company hires staff and sets their pay grade, they make you sign a patient contract for each patient, they assign you your patients (you can decline), they set your hours, my boss calls meetings (not very often), and you must answer to her for everything from aide complaints, doctor appointment mix ups, let her aware of med changes.... and several other things. Is this really considered being a independent contractor or a employee????

    That's a very complicated legal question best answered by a labor lawyer.
