I went through the archives and didn't find much on this. I have done one project for a company and they were very pleased. So pleased, that they would prefer I become an employee (not) or put me on a retainer to contract, thereby locking in some of my availability.

1. Can I retain independent contractor status if on a retainer?

2. Any words of advice for structuring an agreement where they are paying for X hours/month and how I defining the project(s) that would fit that criteria? I am very concerned about being taken advantage. I can easily see how they could just keep throwing stuff at me.
TIA, Carol Gilbert
