Compare and contrast the differences between agents and independent contractors. Provide an example of each.

What are the liabilities of the principal when it comes to the independent contractor?  Why is this an important thing to understand…?

Are there advantages?  To either the employer or the worker if he or she is designated and independent contractor…? Why or why not…?  What is the degree of control mean in the concept of being an independent contractor…? How important is this in deciding if there should be independent contractor or employee…? Thoughts?  If a dispute happens and either party is not happy…who (or what agency) become the investigator…who is the one that decides who is responsible for negative actions?

If an agent has permission to act on behalf of a principal… and the agent does things that they “feel” are in the best interest.. however, in reality they hurt the principal’s position.. who’s to blame?
Is it the principal because they gave them consent to act on their behalf?  Or is it the agent because they didn’t use that power wisely?…
