If you carry out your job duties in the order set by your employer, a factor of control exists. In this circumstance, you are not free to follow your own pattern of work. Instead, you must follow the established routines and schedules of your employer. Even if your employer does not set the order of your job tasks, he or she only needs the right to do so for control to exist.
