As an independent contractor, you work where and when you want. You
might need to be on site for meetings or to use resources that aren't
available remotely, but if they want you to be on site at certain
hours to do work you could do just as well at another location of your
choosing, you're an employee.

> My question is this: You said that you can't be stopped from working from home when there is no good reason to go in. Obviously, one man's "good reason" is another man's "excuse." That's very vague, so don't there need to be specific guidelines/rules/policies in place about what constitutes a good reason for working from home as opposed to going in?
