You are telling people when and where (your premises) they have to work. And I assume you're going to tell them how to do their jobs. Sounds like employees to me.
Does this mean I can't have a contractor ship and receive if I have previously had an employee ship and receive?
Sounds sketchy... I'd definitely run it by a lawyer with experience in this area. Or actually, ask the IRS for a ruling. It doesn't matter what a lawyer says if the IRS still disallows it.
