Very frequently second class status is mandated by employment laws. If you
treat a contractor like a full-time employee, you leave youself open to a
claim from the contractor that they are *really* a full-time employee and
entitled to benefits, etc. - exactly the situation you are trying to avoid
in the first place. In theory contractors should not attend company and
department meetings. And birthday parties? - forget about it.
