How do they get away with requiring that you work 9-5 at their location and calling it "freelance" for IRS purposes?

That's pretty weird. Maybe they really meant contract? I don't really know much about what they can and cna't get away with. I do know that there are no freelancers in my department who are required to be here 9-5 every day.

Are you contractors? It may well depend on the industry, but they *could* get in deep doo doo for requiring you to act like employees and not paying employment taxes for you. It's not unheard-of, even in big companies. They have to write their contracts very carefully.
