Lets say I'm a doctor and I work for an private health clinic. I'm working under a professional service contract, but they provide me with and office and all materials and equipment necessary to do my job. I have no control over the clinic's decisions and they want me to be there at an specific time in the morning every day. Also I have to comply with orders that in some way affect my way of doing my job (like I can't make prescriptions of an specific medicine and how much time I should spend with a patient). I know a doctor classifies under the Professional definition under the Puerto Rico Labor Laws. But at the same time I feel more like an employee than a contractor. Its not clear to me, can you help me clarify this dilemma?
