I understand that you are basically asking if the people you hire to work for your business can be considered independent contractors and not employees. This is a question not to be answered without deep understanding of how your business will operate.

Instead of answering the question I would refer you to the article on the IRS site that describes in details the difference between independent contractors and employees, as well as gives you an idea of what would happend if the worker is misclassified:,,id=99921,00.html
