Find a perfect answer (lacking independent prefix) in this article:
"A contractor or a consultant -- How to decide"

> 2. What is a subcontractor?

An individual or a company who gets assigned by a contractor (not by a
company who has - usually outsourced - a project to be done by a contractor)
to do part(s) of a project for which a contractor doesn't have an interest
in, technical knowledge, experience etc. Well, that's my understanding about
this question.

> 3. Are all independents 1099rs (i.e., can an independent recieve W2s)?

Sorry, I don't understand the question (too much States jargon?).

> 4. Can an independent work through an agency?
Why not? But one would have to define independency in this case.
> If so, how can such an individual be labled 'independent'?
Yes, what would it mean? That he can works on projects not by agency
standards etc? I guess it just mean that he is an independent but has an
agency umbrella for tasks which would otherwise have to be done by himself
(contract, pay, estimates, ...).

Hmm, if the agency allows this. I don't think this is smart for it, though
