What is the maximum length of time for an employment contract in Arizona?

I am a contractor. Have been for 2.5 years. Is there a state or federal mandated limit on how long I can remain a contractor, or is there no limit. Can you please link or quote a source for me. Thanks so much!

      The limits on who is a contractor as opposed to who is an employee all have to do with "control" not time.

      If I say to you "I’ll pay you $1,000 to buld me a 50 foot fence", you’re a contractor. If I say "I’ll pay you $20 an hour to build me a fence, and you work 9am to 5pm", you’re an employee.

      As a general rule, if you set your own hours and are paid only on the basis of what you produce for your client, it is legal for you to be a contractor. If you work the hours the client tells you, doing what he tells you, you are an employee.

      Every year hundreds of companies pay a combined millions of dollars in fines and back payments of wages, overtime, workers comp premiums etc after they "thought" they were being smart by classifying their *employees* as *contractors*.
