Exactly - Schedules

I have been doing strictly IC work since 2013/2014. A company cannot dictate your schedule. It is up to the IC to tell the company what hours they will be working, or at least give a rough estimate. The company does not get to dictate your schedule. However, when you tell the company that you will be starting work around noon, but you don't show up until 3 or 4 pm, that is wrong. You still need to communicate with the company and inform them if there is ever a time when you need to alter your hours or take a day or two off. That's called common courtesy and professionalism. These companies still need to make sure they will have adequate coverage to ensure the work gets done in a timely manner.

You are also right about line rates. Just like self-employed individuals in any other profession, the IC is the one to set their price. So many companies are getting away with treating ICs like employees. If they want to dictate your schedule, your pay rate, and tell you when and how to do your job, then they need to be paying your taxes. There really needs to be much tighter regulation in this regard.
