I think this provision makes it highly likely that the IRS will regard this
as an employer/employee relationship.

You should probably advertise for a temporary employee, not an independent
contractor, and be prepared to pay all the usual payroll taxes. Otherwise
you might be opening your company up for big trouble down the road.

Don't take my word for this. Ask your lawyer. ...RM
