No longer work in IT. Play around with stuff sometimes still and fix stuff for friends and relatives.

    - Does the worker perform services that are at the heart of the company’s business? If he does, then he’s an employee. For example, if you’re a Web designer working at a Web design company as an independent contractor, you’re likely to raise a red flag.

    - Does the employer control what the worker does and how he does it? “If I set you up in an office, provide you with my own tools, tell you that you have to be in between 8 and 5 Monday through Friday,” Dacri says, “you’re an employee.”

    Yikes!

    I know companies that work this way and I suspect they will get red-flagged soon. icon_sad.gif

    That's like employment law 101 though...
