mightybaldking: Let's discuss the merits of the case. When is someone an independent contractor and when are they an employee?Key factors include:Who has to actually perform the work?An I.C. merely has to guarantee that the work is performed to an agreed upon standard. An IC can sub-contract the work if they wish.An employee is required do do the work him/her self.So, can the stripper in question send her room-mate to cover a shift?Who sets the hours and location?An I.C. can come and go as they please, within reasonable constraints. A construction worker can show up as early as the site opens, or as late as it closes. When there are multiple trades involved, there may be scheduling issues with access to the site, and other dependencies (The painter can't go in before the drywaller), but generally, as long as the work is progressing at an agreed upon pace, you can set your own hours.An employee is required to start at a set time, and leave at a set time.Now Consider: (ftfa) a $15 penalty if they arrived late for work and a $100 penalty if they did not come to work without calling in advance.Does this sound like an independent contractor?
Mateorocks: It's about two hours to get to a West Virginia border from DC.I will accept that Baltimore, not DC, could be considered a main metro hub for some residents of West Virginia. I've never been there, but I'm guessing that folks in Morgantown would consider Pittsburgh to be their main metro hub.If I'm wrong, and there are thousands and thousands of folks living in WV walking around wearing RGIII jerseys or Nats hats, please forgive my ignorance.
Mateorocks: . West Virginia is not considered a part of the DC Metro area
nekom: Yeah, they do. And they're not toothless hicks, they're WVU students stripping to pay their way through college.
TheGreatGazoo: There's a reason strip clubs are dark.
Grestep: They can be fully nude in West Virginia as well.
