Hello, I’ve recently begun being an hourly contractor working remotely for a company doing software development. I’m wondering if there is any unspoken agreement between employers and contractors for what they will be billed for? For example, if I was onsite, I’d probably take a 10 - 15 minute break every now and then as well as checking email but still be on the clock, as a remote contractor I can clock-out when I take a break and clock back in when I’m ready. Is that the expectation? In truth, maybe this is a moot point since nobody really knows how long the work I do will take, nobody is going to be able to distinguish an hour or two per week that are me relaxing a bit.
