Do you have set hours at work?

Excerpted from "Social Security Handbook". See the up-to-date, official Social Security Handbook at ssa.gov.

810. Do you have set hours at work?

If your employer has established a fixed work schedule for you, a factor of control exists. In this instance, you are not able to set your own hours, which is a right of an independent contractor. In some cases, fixed hours may not be practical because of the nature of your job. As long as you are required to work at certain times, an element of control still exists.
