What are my rights as a Contractor?

I am classified as a contractor through my employer, but I am being told that I am to report to the office every day to work, or there will be no work from home, plus I am not allowed to pursue other potential work. I am being held to employee standards, without any of the employee benefits. I am paid on an hourly basis, as well as being paid on certain dates, the same as an employee.
I am being mis-classified as a contractor, but I am expected to work as an employee.

What action can I legally take?
Thank You

There are specific tests that are to be applied to determine whether the person is a contractor or an employee, one of the standards to be used is the IRS factors, you can find those on the IRS website. You should actually see an employment lawyer near you to discuss the factors and how they will work.
