I am interested in your interpretation of the following situtation.

You have been employed by a small company; you receive a paycheck with taxes
withheld, and you receive a W-2.

You are now given a 5 page contract to sign titled, Contracting Agreement,
which refers to you as a contractor, delineates contracting services, and has
a Statement of Work that will be completed on a project by project basis at a
pay to be negotiated on a project by project basis. You are informed that you
will not be given any "hours" until you sign the contract.

My interpretation is: you have been fired, but they are offering to hire you
back as a contractor.

Do you agree? Disagree? How would you interpret this?

I appreciate any comments either to the list or in private to Jdigi88 -at- aol -dot- com -dot-
I would be happy to summarize responses for the list, if anyone is interested.
Thanks for your opinions.
