If you mean independent contractor, don't do it. They would not have to
pay FICA and you would need to pay double.

       I'm from Kansas,  where the Legislature and BOE keep trying 
        to define the term "suitable" because our constitution requires
          the state provide a "suitable" education for all students
                      Only Kansas is flat, not the entire planet.
